My latest six-word painting is more ‘rough art’ rather than fine art. It has lots of texture and touches of iridescent white and shiny gold (which aren’t really showing up in the photos). The nest wasn’t part of the original concept but just sort of appeared while I was working on the composition. Painting this reminded me that when I was very young, I wanted to sleep in the branches of our walnut tree, underneath the stars. Who am I kidding? I still do.
Another milestone and another slideshow… seven years on WordPress! This last year has been a whirl of six-word poems, experimental word art, black canvas paintings, and music. Lots of music. Not a bad year at all. In fact quite a good one : )
I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting on WordPress over the next few weeks…
James (husband, best friend, bandmate etc.) and I have a regular gig now, playing covers at a local bar & eatery, and so I’m taking a bit of time out to update our website, social media, set lists and such. It’s very exciting and definitely comes under “careful what you wish for”. We haven’t ‘gigged’ seriously for three years ~ apart from open mics and house parties ~ and now suddenly we will be playing every weekend. Eeep! We played our first gig at Lu Lu’s a couple of weeks ago and had an absolute blast!
It just goes to show that you’re never too old to have a dream come true! : )
P.S. Yes, art will still be happening… once I get my head around the music side of things. In fact I had a bit of fun stencilling our name on to a road case…
P.P.S. If you want to read more about our band, I wrote about it here a few years ago and we have a blog here which I’ve just finishing updating with new videos.
