Wow – is it Saturday again? This week I had a lot on my hands (All self-inflicted so I expect no sympathy) including last-minute preparations for tomorrow’s Twycross Zoo Wedding Fayre – come find me if you are attending – finding a long-wanted set of wardrobes that needed cleaning and painting – and finally kicking off a photography project with my favourite northern geeky girl Christeen!
I’ve been shooting and developing more images from Leamington Spa and even though I have to wait *still* another week to get to print the results, I think it will be worth the wait. I’ve built a wooden structure to fit the top of our four-poster bed, to take some weird-ass photographs with a self-timing mechanism. Before any kinky thought enter your mind ….. NO – it won’t be those sort of photo’s. I’ve started the art-based photography project with Christeen, the first image being mine and finished. I’ll make some space on the website soon to accommodate for running projects so you can actually see what I’m talking about.
My exhibition at Gaia will be coming to a close this weekend, I’ll be collecting my works on Monday. I was well chuffed to find I had sold one of my pieces to (I suspect) Dave Philips, who also wrote a small piece about the exhibition to be entered into the forthcoming spring issue of ArtSpace Magazine. Thanks for the support Dave, it is much appreciated!
All the same the exhibition at Gallery 150 will be closing tomorrow and I just *hope* Sean will remember to collect my paintings as I’ll still be at the Wedding Fayre during pick-up times.
So…. what’s for next week? Collecting Images fro Gaia (Mon), Meeting Jean about some illustrations to her children’s story (Tue), comedy night (Tue), darkroom work (Thurs), making adjustments to the website, uploading images, read some books, find out more about galleries, magazines and art funding and ofcourse the blog…. I think I can keep myself entertained.
