Onwards with the exhibition collection.

 So I have the date booked for the next major showing of my work.
It will be in May, argh,  the date seemed so far away when I booked it a couple of months ago, but it seems to be looming now.
I have been working steadily, just slowly. Finding it difficult to pare the work back. So much I want to include but want the work to be cohesive as a body.
I have jumped around with various materials and mediums, experimenting.

dyed, collaged and stitched detail of a glimpse of Croatia

                                          The plains in Spain... And yes I even had a go at painting, so quick in comparison to the piece above.

A glimpse of my students' work.

So sorry for my extreme absence, things just got a little out of hand, what with a massive school art show, holidays and general dislike for spending more time on the computer, I just haven't written anything.

In my role as primary art teacher I put together a massive Art Show celebrating my school's 30th birthday. The show was called Feast. It was so great to see the children's art on display. There was drama as well.  It was so good that I will include a few photos of my amazing children's work here

picnic food, mmm

  beautiful little ceramic cakes for High Tea, on paper mache plates!

So then it was back to work on my artwork. 
That will be in the next update!
Hopefully very soon
