My lady with her heavy shopping bags is finished. The snow is bright white and crisp and the sky is heavy with more snow to follow, the little birds are chirpy and hungry.
Today I am starting a piece about an owl in the night time. I have not made a piece about an owl for a very long time and I am excited, as yet I do not know if there is going to be two people or just one in the piece, I started some little drawings on my train journey into work today and am going to have a lot of space in the piece.
I am so looking forward to seeing what this collection of pieces is going to look like all displayed together at Origin 2009. I am in the second week and have a wonderful stand, long and thin with a lot of wall space-lovely!
I went and saw my old studio share mate Lindsey Mann www.lindseymann.co.uk last week in her wonderful new studio which she shares with her colleague Olivia Lowe www.olivialowe.co.uk the studio looks out across rolling Hampshire countryside with spectacular views in all directions, very inspiring. The work they both produce is very inspiring too!
Tomorrow I am having the day off and Michael and I are off on an adventure on our bikes. I need to be outside for a day and to see the sky and hopefully feel the sun on my face.
