Taken today in the crisp sunshine!
Fragile. Norfolk, January 2017.
We lost a lovely gentle man on Christmas Day. Too soon.
Not today obviously, it’s far too foggy!
Really enjoyed abstracting and abstracting this figure yesterday until I had the bare bones (so to speak!).

Having a play with watercolour, photography and digital manipulation!
Having a play – a new one for my Do Not Crush the Daisy series 🙂
Last term we had several guest speakers (that I have blogged about) and I have tried to visit as many exhibitions and galleries as I can. Plus I have been discovering artists online too.
I decided to write three words that each had taught me and thought it might be fun to make this into a wordcloud. I have made my own artwork from their finest attributes 🙂
Humour is the biggest thing I took from the artists I admired – keep it fun, play.
I was always struck by the dedication and passion shown by the artists and in the amount of research that went into their work.
Each one has changed my practice in some way and it has been a pleasure learning about them.
Can you guess which artists inspired what words?!
[They are: Susan O’Malley, Tanya Wood, Katayoun Dowlatshahi, Clare Strand, Paige Bradley, John Hoyland, Mark Anstee, Bruce Williams, Mandy Webb, Catherine Harper, S Mark Gubb, Suzanne Moxhay, Anthony Gorman, Grayson Perry and Rebecca Bauman. ]
Close your eyes for a minute; within each of us is an endless space – there is nothing, there are no ‘things’ – there are no boundaries. This space can be peaceful and full of potential – it is the universe within.

Above is a digital art piece done on my tablet this morning.
A reflective moment in the Alver Valley….
