A girl can never have enough shoes however old she is.
On Day 144 you will remember I said I would reveal the pieces I was stretching and wiring so earnestly. This wonderful cross-stitch scene my wife made when she was pregnant with our daughter and after she was born it hung over her crib. Happily it will now be hanging in her own daughter’s nursery in pride of place.These pieces, also for the nursery, are images from favourite books that I used to read to her and her brother for years, which I have scanned, printed onto canvas and then stretched onto the small frames. I’m already looking forward to reading them all over again.
What a great day it has been today. I hope yours has been too.
Lessons from the Great Masters Day 1 24.6.15A big thank you to Debi Riley, an inspirational artist and teacher in Perth Australia, who introduced us, through her wonderful blog a couple of weeks ago, to one of her treasured art books – Tate Watercolour Manual: Lessons from the Great Masters. I ordered it online and it arrived a day or two ago; what a treasure indeed. Today I started exploring it in the studio and am already excited by what I hope to learn. Thank you Debi for the introduction but more importantly for the great inspiration you are to all of your students and for sharing with us, through your superb artistic creations your passion and love of art and for teaching. Visit Debi’s blog to learn more about her treasured books and explore her many lessons for aspiring artists.
