If you wait to blog your mind does fog

Writing is sunshine do it in your time

It’s been awhile

Proposed art

Looking back to Hollywoods golden age.

She left a Hedy parfum

Strongly believed in cultivating inner strength 

The essence of a creative spirited woman

By doing the work on an invention she was ahead of her time 

Inspiring others to find confidence to uncover potential.

I looked deeply to see and to feel 

Process still in my head.

I find fun in being able to source my materials visiting Schofields reclamation yard. The beauty of reclaim is that you never know what you’ll come across what gems – that something special 18×24 piece of Slate .I found my self working against the grain unable to stop each stage at a time .Big thanks to David great tea maker in our house .



      When is an etch a sketch
      Process priceless
      Without it
      Life is spice less
      Working with the dust
      Simple tools eye to hand

      Plastic paint

      With every fine brush stroke I must be aware of the final result

      I work with a small section at a time this technique does not gallop across a slate .

      Orange,cerulean blue black and white the colours just right

      Shades of grey the aftermath of a great day.

      With each step of the process the painter sees values emerge

      always learning to change those values as we paint 

      Unfolding a surprise for him a challenge for me 

      Working with the Stars not the Wars 


      Get It

      Sometimes there’s little to draw on
      We get hungry
      Looking for nourishment
      Waiting for wages
      That will never come
      “I’ve paid myself”
      With a little help.
      We feel we know the way it is for you
      Though we don’t speak your language entirely
      Creating sound shapes
      Brittle squishy we’re all a little wishy
      Lots of different things
      Life you can stop and start when you like
      Can’t help it got to do it
      Get It.

      Nostalgia Studio and Space

      When the future looks unattractive we spend more time thinking of the past.You my have prospered emotionally there’s no guarantee will that continue ? we have to take charge now.I’m in a different place from we’re I started vital art development 6days 6 weeks none stop into a studio lone but not lonely the year went by fast.A painter is like a traveller with every first step finding new ways unable to stop left or is it right .A clear line without clutter absorbing the cost along the way ,we lean in and slow down .Bring past experience to bare art is as varied as our needs innate power drawing us in if we are not care full takes over concentration to isolation.
      The most important the ones closest are the ones that help us the most
      quiet ways my gal Maxine and David .

      Constructive development we calculated the cost after – rent/ petrol/ parking/ food and drink though I recall losing weight went through two grand a tool at the right time. Use influence from the past does not fit into the present you’ve got to find a better way of working .I’m not interested that much in nostalgia I’m part of it the gentle annoyance.

      Nostalgia is not what it used to be

      Dashboard but not fingerboard word press to a new page
      New links oh no I have to make sure it’s embed in blue.

      Conscious thoughts edit for me

      We pummel ourselves we think we’re broken
      That’s were I want to be.

      Don’t hide inside others to be seen
      The world it’s good with that
      Someone asked me “what is your practice ?
      Its part of the process of change you see.

      Concepts inherent in everyday materials life
      we pull out help from inside
      but at the same time it legs us up
      That’s how it is .
