Have made it through another winter and enjoyed a visit to sunny Florida but happy to have this warm weather and official SUMMER back again! Hope you are enjoying it too ... lots of good friends and BBQ and outdoor activities but am still painting although have slowed down on the updates and blogging
I do have another blog at clairebull.blogspot.com and this one is just random (obviously - it has been ONE YEAR after all...) but have been trying to keep up with emails and Facebook and friends and combine that with the outdoor and painting so it is a bit tougher
Am knitting another pair of socks and finished a few lace shawls - and have created some really fun abstracts and mixed media pieces
A local gallery phoned me and they want my work - show is end of July !!! So have been preparing for that - have joined some great groups and entered competitions and enjoying the positive responses and being in the top 160 out of 6000 entries was great - being in the top 3 in the contests is always rewarding and having my work featured in the groups is great incentive to continue - what a wonderful way to start the day!!
I have so many new works but am working on better photography of the art, although I have ordered prints and cards and they look great - am enjoying my studio and seem to listen to Alan Parsons Project a lot - it is very inspirational
Keeping up the websites and trying to paint and see some friends is about all I can do right now and it is sometimes frustrating - but I am trying to take the medication and do what I can - the art is therapeutic and the positive support is so appreciated
I hope you are enjoying your summer too and that it is a creative day for you each day
