Each week I try to send the little ones a notelet, with a bit of writing, a picture and a couple of silver coins stuck to the back of each notelet. Here are today’s painting, done using acrylics. I began by painting a black background – a first for me. #NotAnArtist
I painted this from an image on the laptop and I think it’s my best so far. But I’m still NotAnArtist! You can see my development / non-development at https://thingschange.blog/not-an-artist/
This morning I popped into a local charity shop (Oxfam) to buy some books (4 novels). It’s good to be able to go into bookshops again.
The entrance to Studio 9 of the Oaks Park Studios is not very inviting.
It looks like something one might have found in Eastern Europe circa 1950.
Stacked branches reminded me of………
……. an early artwork by my daughter
When we got back from our 9 days in Eastbourne, part of our walls had been turned into an art gallery (the plate is ours)! We had vacated our home so that our grandchildren weren’t homeless between house moves – and this is how they thank us!!
Until the ‘social distancing’ becomes a ‘curfew’ it’s still possible to enjoy the parks and countryside. This morning, a walk in the park and a browse past the art gallery turned up a couple of nice images.
“When are you going to do shapes and not just scribbles”, I asked Iris, age 3¼.
“I can, grandad”, she said. She then produced a drawing – of me! Wonderful.
More artwork of Iris and her older sister Chloe can be found at https://thingschange.blog/artwork-by-chloe-iris/
