It's school holidays here
and of course it's been raining
day after day (ho hum)
but today the sun is out,
washing line is full
and I'm getting excited.
Why you may ask???
Well, it's because I'm doing a weekend workshop
using inks and all sorts of goodies
to hopefully produce
two wonderful bright paintings.
There was quite a bit of sucking up to grandparents and
my older daughter to babysit my little miss.
My hubby is going away on a weeks school rugby camp
and it happened to be the same time as my workshop,
but it all came together and I am going this weekend.
Here is my desk area today.
I'm gathering all the goodies I bought to go on the workshop.
I will be doing two of the canvasses you can see here
and here's a closer look at some of what I'll be taking.
My hubby took me to a big art warehouse in the city
(I don't drive into the city, too much traffic and one way streets)
and I went nuts, bought half the place up
and also a heap of things for little miss to play with too.
I'll be using all sorts of found objects and gooping them to the
canvas with coloured impasto and outlining my subject with
"iced on" coloured impasto, then using the syringes
to drop ink on and swoosh it around to (hopefully)
create some great paintings.
All going well and even if it doesn't go well,
I'll show what I produce next week.
That's my excitement for the week,
now go see what everyone else has on their desks
over at Julia's Stamping Ground.
See Julia, I can do a short post occasionally :)
