As usual, I have branched out into another process - because despite loving painting and printmaking, I feel a need to experiment (firmly believing that if we don't try various processes, how will we know if we have a liking or aptitude for it . . . while also thinking - that occassionally being outside our comfort zone, is a good way of making us look at things differently ) while also expanding my skill set. . . . so I have tried mould making, and casting from clay sculptures I have created . . .which while enjoyable is an entirely new process I needed to learn . . . which has resulted in an entirely new body of work - inspired by our camaraderie as a group . . .
I have enjoyed selling two works prior to the exhibition, but now face the decision of doing more or exhibiting less.

I hope they enjoy the brightness and designs inspired by Lily's Ikebana, The Roo, animals, birds and growth. . . for I have enjoyed the inspiration, and the painting process.
Next week, the group are again getting together for another workshop - a process I love for we inevitably learn a new technique while having fun . .. a great combination. This time it is ceramics. Linda will instruct us over two days on hand building and slip casting . . . I am looking forward to playing with earth again. . . . pics to follow soon.
