Summer Days

The weather is getting hotter and now with January here it will get even hotter.  My studio has no air conditioning and no real ventilation so it is impossible to work in in the summer.  Small periods of time is all I can last for.  So, I’ve had to bring some work inside.

I’m also happy to report that I have started working on my art again.  The lead up to Christmas was too hectic, and then with the Christmas Carnivals and then the Bay Crits, I haven’t had a lot of time to just sit and work.  It is so nice to get involved in a new project.

I have had to start working on silk cut lino, not my favourite, actually that’s not fair to say, I haven’t really used it before and therefore I don’t know how I will go with it.  I do find it crumbly, but perhaps I should have started on a smaller project first and got used to it a bit first.

This is also the largest lino I’ve attempted so far, and I hope it doesn’t do my head in too much.  With the others I’ve done, I have just worked in patches and not tried to do the whole image as once.  I think that works best and will do the same with this one.

Next step is to do some work on my paintings.  I need someone to give me a shove and make me get out there.  I know the real problem is fear, I’m worried that I can’t do it.  Which is so silly because I also know I can.  Our brains can be such silly things.

    Death by blank canvas. The only way to overcome it is to put a mark on the canvas!
