Show (and tell) time...

A very handy pinboard with 'censored' lengths
I have been quite stressed, somewhat, or rather what comes with being mentally busy. Preparing for hand in today was slightly fraught to say the least. Other things were determined to get in the way but I eventually got there, minus 2 x A2 paintings that strangely have disappeared off the face of the earth, no doubt I shall find them tomorrow. Maybe it was a sign.

Bound to be writing
I have less practical work this time, more thinking and focusing though..and, there is still a way to go; sampling, experimenting, refining (repeating ad infinitum) and only then producing final pieces.

Pantone colour for 2016 :-)

Today I had to present my work, I had a plan but as is usual it went by the wayside once I started rabbiting, as sometimes I am wont to do. I managed to continue to speak for a good 20 minutes and for someone as quiet as me (!) I think that's an achievement, and I only slightly 'filled up' with the emotion of my subject, once.
I said all I had to say, another achievement as usually I'm kicking myself for missing out that all important, crucial word. (Although one will probably come to me later).
Anyway, I feel good.

Worn out. Raised pile

AND I have big idea's. I will tell you more/them next week...Ciao

P.S. I have just remembered... I forgot to mention Auschwitz.


  1. I would love to see these pieces of work and have you talk about them. Do you have any plans to show them? So glad you got your hand in done, you must feel good. Have a lovely Christmas. Jayne

    1. Thanks for the comment Jayne, much appreciated! It seems a little strange to be thinking about doing a talk about this work at this point, as it is nowhere near a conclusion... There will be an exhibition late next year but not with this 'development' work.. maybe I should think about it further and do something AFTER I have finished the MA? Cx

  2. Do you...
    1) love God?
    2) love one another?
