It's been a big week again
with things happening on
four different canvasses.
Firstly to my desks
Some of you may remember that in a
moment of sheer madness a while ago
I cleaned up my studio
(I still shudder at the thought of it).
Well, you will be surprised to know that
it is still reasonably
(that might be stretching it a bit)
(please note, you can see the floor).
There is just a bit of mess on the desk but it looks
far worse than it actually is (cough, cough).
All those bits of paper up on the high notice board are
my filing system for phone numbers and
the rest are bits of paper with ideas on and general
junk that lands there.
This is my gooping station, where I put all my goop
in bags to keep it fresh and ready to play with.
Here is my storage area, where my paint, inks and
all sorts live. There are a few shelves with my
"pretty things" on. Whenever I feel flat or I
can't find my mojo, I look at all those lovely things
and it helps with the inspiration.
I haven't shown you all the corners,
hey a girl has to
have some secrets!!
So painting wise, I sealed my bird painting,
finished the jelly fish painting and sealed it as well.
Just have to add the hangers when it is really hard.
Most of the week I've been bent over my new bird canvas
and yes my back really aches.
I've nearly finished gooping, just the bird to go now.
I've got so much goop on that sucker
that it's gonna weigh more than me
and that's saying something!!
If you visited me last week you would have
seen my cockatoos (here).
Well they have had a little change in attitude.
I give you the the new
Oh yeah, this is really in your face type stuff.
I'm starting to really panic now....
I trust my teacher but this is pushing the envelope a tad.
There is a lot of glazing to come so it will quieten down some.
If I keep saying that I might convince myself it'll happen.
I am painting in the faces and feet this week,
hmm, wonder if I should paint in some piercings,
maybe on on an eyebrow and one through a beak.
What do you think?
That's my little corner of the world for this week,
why not hop over to
and visit more desks around the world
I've got some head banging to do to
get me in the mood to paint these birds.
