I picked up a copy of Home Beautiful this morning after my artwork was
spied in a lovely nursery that is featured in a South Australian home.
It is so rewarding to see my own work in someone else's house. On the
back wall are two of my sewn shoes (this is one).
Apart from that, I've been working on some new works from paper dolls,
to birds and a new found theme I am exploring is cacti!
I sent the kids away with Mr N to get hair cuts and to run a few errands, whilst I spent some time in my studio finishing works and drawing out new ideas. I've been struggling to break free from the 'matryoshka hooded face' for sometime. I'm still drawing these, but I get a bored with them from time to time. This new series, Folk Girls, is the best I've managed to produce so far. Now all I have to do is get my printer fixed and I can start to see if they will make a good print to sell. I also will be updating my shop with some new works, including some collaged shoes, just as soon as I find a shoe box for my son to play with, hang out the washing, clean the kitchen and replay the same home video movie of Miss M when she was a baby to keep her happy for the next 30 minutes.
