I was at college today for our last day in the studio. To think in 2 weeks it'll be our exhibition -eek!. I was getting a bit stressed out with my piece so wandered over to my friend E, who was painting. She invited me to join in and this is what I came up with. It's a mixture of acrylic paints and oil pastels. This is only a small section of it and the overall piece did look more exciting in the flesh - honest. It was just what I needed. This was creating something that was removed from what I'm doing so was a joy. It didn't have to be right. I could be free.
It's also inspired me to do some more. Once the show is out if the way and I've got the summer "off", I may do more of these - either as textile stitched pieces or perhaps (if I like them enough) they'll be canvases for friends presents. I'm so cheap!
