Any way you are all asking what this eureka moment might be! Its not going to change your life but it might actually help me get one!
I am going to start a project. In a sense I have already have. In painting my ACEOs recently I have been drawing on my local knowledge of the area and painted some local sights, like the ones you see here, there is the inland beach lighthouse at Burnham on Sea, Clifton suspension Bridge and the Somerset levels. This got me thinking that we live in a stunningly beautiful area, with such variety, sea countryside, city and villages. So I want to document this in my paintings.
Not that dramatic you say, but for me it solves a lot of my problems.
It channels my creativity in a positive and hopefully productive way.
Both me and Mr WD have been talking about how we just don't go and about enough and we both want to be more active. So we can go on little trips that don't demand going to far have nice walks and I can sketch and get ideas for paintings.
But it also get my lovely husband taking photos , this is something I have been trying to do for sometime. He loves taking photos and I think he is a good photographer ....he doesn't agree.
I want him to explore his photography far more.
He thinks he's not a creative person but I hoping he will see in the results that he is.
I have just persuaded him to put a few photos on flickr a , check out my favourite one here
I sort of have in my head that if I manage to get some good results from my paintings I may try and organise a little local exhibition in about a years time, so its not that I am rushing myself but giving myself time to explore and see if this idea might go some where.
I am excited about the prospect and now am itching to get started. I may even start in my lunch time at work tomorrow to get some city skyline sketches done........
