Now for some painting…
I go through different phases. First I’m obsessed with cooking and baking and I can’t stop thinking about my next meal! I spent about two weeks just baking bread. Next I’m glued to the sewing machine or sitting on the couch crocheting totally unaware that it’s half six and I still haven’t had dinner.
Or else I’m drawing and painting, usually if I’m in an arty mood then I can hardly sleep, I just keep thinking of different ideas for paintings. I never really thought about this until I had an exhibition a few years ago and had about 15 massive paintings hanging on the gallery wall for all to see. All of them so colourful, usually featuring a wide eyed girl or cute woodland creature. Then a man in his 50’s came in and said that he had never seen someone (an adult) so bravely expressing themselves. Then I thought ‘Oh shit!’ and didn’t paint for months! It’s like when someone is singing along to the radio and you compliment them on their harmonising abilities and then they refuse to sing again.
This painting takes pride of place in the hall above the fold up chairs and drinks cupboard. She was my favourite one so I couldn’t sell her. She spends all day looking out the window and guarding my precious wine.
I’ve been thinking of painting the drinks cupboard but I just can’t decide. Maybe when I’m going through my next furniture makeover phase!
Have a great weekend!
