It's been a while since I posted but that doesn't mean I haven't been making art. I have been both painting and printmaking.
However, during the summer I decided that I needed a change of direction and scanned the horizon for something that would give me a new way of thinking. It's difficult to maintain focus after you leave an academic/artistic environment and that has been the case increasingly for me since I left the city and moved to a rural environment. I don't think it's lack of inspiration but rather finding a focus and a reason for producing work that is the problem. I am constantly inspired and full of ideas just lack the impetus at times.
It's the oddest thing but several art friends seem to have reached this stage at the same time, so perhaps every ten years or so it is time to spin the wheel.
So, I decided start a Textile Art course with the OCA so you will be able to catch me over at the associated blog heaveninrags.wordpress.com
