Lets get the bad out of the way.
In a word SNOW......
The snow came down Friday and I didn't get back into my Studio until Wednesday, The worst of it was that I had to cancel my Saturday morning teaching session and I had a new lady coming. I really hate letting people down, but even worse when they have never actually met you. But I think she appreciated I had cancelled for the students safety. We are rather remote and a bit difficult to get to in the worst of the weather conditions.
But also it added to my frustration with painting. I am teaching 4 sessions a week now, not including extra workshops ( it is fantastic that I am in demand), but it means my actual painting time is getting very limited. I had started a painting that I was really, really into .... and I had planned to try and finish it Saturday afternoon, once my morning students had gone, but I had to wait until Wednesday.
I am pleased though as I still managed to finish it this week and for once I am dead chuffed with it, as it came out just about how I wanted it to.
It a bit big for me if I remember right the canvas is 60cm x 60cm but I will have to double check. Also its been sometime since I did an acrylic painting, but I am really enjoying it at the moment.
I have moved onto the next one in the series, this one would you believe is going to be seaweed
Also... Gosh hasn't it been a busy week. I have done a little acrylic sketch. It came out to a free drawing I did with one of my students and I decided to move it on. I have no idea where it will go from here but I know its not finished....so watch this space.
One of my students is working on a mural with several of the people she helps care for, so it has been interesting, discussing possibilities and helping her to understand the advantages and limitations of working in a group.
On a personal level then I also finished the cardigan I have been knitting, check out my previous blog if you want to have a nosey
See you all next week and lets hope for no more snow
