Layered and textured paper. Part of a new artwork. Don’t forget to check out Just Snaps, too.
Now, you didn’t think I’d allow this Photo Challenge to pass by without an entry, did you? Honestly? Well, there’s one at Just Snaps too, because I play with colour each and every day. So here’s a gallery for you, some colour studies for an exhibition that will eventually rear it’s head before I know it…..
Now, what shall I find for Just Snaps?

Full details of the challenge can be found here. I’m not taking as easy a way out as you might think! The picture below illustrates not only a universal symbol of ‘Love’, but is made using a process that I ‘love’ to use.

Are you an artist? Do you strive for perfection? Do you wish you were an artist? Do you dabble in all sorts of media but somehow always miss the mark? Do you just wish that you had the time or inclination to ‘play’ like some others are able? Do you wonder what inspires people and how on earth they create what they do?
I find it very difficult to describe what I do. I do – what I do. To save time I suggest that I’m an artist that currently works in textiles. I’m not a textile artist – I feel that is a title that is not worthy of anyone. Why? How many artists do you know that describe themselves as ‘an oil paint artist’? I work with mixed media, collage, fabrics, stitching, paper….. I’m constantly refining what I do and how I work, and I’ve learnt the hard way to very rarely show anything on the internet that has any value.
We have a 5 year old grandson. He’s a living miracle. Born weeks before his due date he was tiny, problems with breathing and feeding were the first battles, but thankfully he grew from strength to strength and is now full of beans and a joy. We see him regularly, and he was part of the company here on Christmas Day. He is interested in the mechanics of how things work, how things are made, and he loves to read and to draw. We recently started drawing with two pencils – one in each hand and at the same time. He loved it. His comment a the time is the title of this post! On Christmas Day he decided he wanted to draw a cat. I asked him how he would do that. He thought for a moment or two. ‘I’ll think about what it has’. So, what has it? He named the parts as he drew…
a mouth and nose
don’t forget the ears
it’s got a body
and a big bushy tail’
See, it’s easy! You draw what you see
I do so hope he doesn’t lose the freedom of expression that children of this age enjoy. It’s taken some of us a very long time to regain
I’m not sure how long I’ve had my iPad. It isn’t the latest one, and I didn’t queue for it when it was released. In fact I didn’t buy it expecting to use it at all! It was bought to encourage another family member to use the internet. As that didn’t work I resorted to using it myself.
It took a while to find my favourite uses, a while to find appropriate apps, but I want to assure you that I don’t use it to play games! So, why do I love it?
I love it because the camera (which isn’t the best) is so accessible.
However, it can be used for on the spot snapping and viewing, which means that it is possible to record and audition several different combinations and layouts before making a final decision.
Much easier than waiting to go to the computer.
And the result?
It only needs mounting now, and then it’s ready for sale.
Oh, and I love using the WordPress app too.
Three weeks old, and celebrating her first New Year. We didn’t expect anyone quite so young at our gathering last night, but what a delightful surprise, and she was so good! We met with friends and neighbours, so no-one had far to travel, and no motorways to circumnavigate!
Lots of delicious food
I didn’t get photographs of the beef and duck that followed, but I didn’t forget the booze
Midnight came and we celebrated
Finally it was time for dessert! Now you need your imagination because the pictures are awful!
Between us all we managed to make a very good job of demolishing it! Yum, lovely crunchy walnuts were in there too, and we needed the sugar to keep us going until after 3am. Wish you could have all joined us, we had lots of fun. In fact, we had so much fun that I admitted to my friends, family and neighbours that I’ve been blogging for the whole of 2011! That wasn’t as easy as it sounds, so I’m hoping it will be considerered worthy of the ‘No Comfort Zone 2012‘ challenge……… If you fancy a challenge, why not join in too?
So, all that remains is for me to show you my art for the beginning of the year! Take a look at the quote – and remember it!
The end of the year is only a short while away. Soon the book will close and can no longer be opened. What an interesting year this has been. How will you remember the year? Have you recorded it in any way? Have you recorded it the way you would have wished?
If you are looking for a new way to keep a record of next year you may like to consider something like this
‘This is a year-long time-lapse study of the sky. A camera installed on the roof of the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds. From these images, I created a mosaic of time-lapse movies, each showing a single day. The days are arranged in chronological order. My intent was to reveal the patterns of light and weather over the course of a year.
This video is designed to be viewed in a large format, so it’s best viewed in full-screen mode at 1080p.

If you view it in full screen mode you will notice that the time of day is noted in the bottom right hand corner.
Each year I make my own Christmas cards. Hooray! They are all finished – even the ones to be delivered by hand. Each one is slightly different, and I won’t bore you with the fine details, but part of the technique I used is here.
Now I just have to stick on the stamps……
