Some more altered book pages
Inspired by matisse
I nearly went home today- I am feeling a bit homesick and am missing my family- but I have commitments and I have to bring home some quilts from Chilford the weekend after next. So I had better sew up a storm between now and then, to make up for this feeling. Today was a bit of a loss- weather was pretty boring and I set up the sewing machine, switched it on but then the blahs hit.So have been searching the net for artists residencies that allow you to take your family with you- there are none as far as I can see. Why is it presumed that artists/crafts practioners have no families?? You are supposed to make all this work , and yet live the life of a hermit or free spirit, without the positive interaction of husbands and children.Are we all meant to be single without commitments , floating through the world creating whatever it is that we do with no recognition that we may live in the world much as other people do- that is with families.
if I had the means I would set up a place for artists' residencies where families can come along!!! - in Gellibrand!
