this is the last piece i finished, ‘torrent’, it is actually a macquette for a much larger piece, but graces the living room and reminds me that the blue/buff/brass combination is still nagging at me, there is a painting waiting to come…i nearly bought a pack of tinted charcoal pencils yesterday, but the super-realist illustration on it put me right off…i am not very comfortable working in a designed/ fixed intention style, i love to allow plenty of the random suggestions of the universe in…following rigorous intuitive process is the common bedrock of the art i make, however disparate the media…

yes, these are all made in the last 3 years, a boyfriend once told me during an argument that i was like a 70s disco mirror ball – to which i replied, why yes, i am!

“IT WAS AN INSULT!”

wasted on me, i still relish that insight 😉

apart from the photograph each piece is made by letting my hands choose what needs to come next and keeping my critic in the corner while i play! the photograph was made by playing with settings on picasa, it’s a piece of bleached fence panel, but reminds me of the lovely ripples in the sand that shine blue at dusk…mmm…

but being multifarious really helps with staying creative in spite of pain, fatigue and diminished strength, there’s always another way to try…
