I finally have most of my things in one place after having them spread between various places for the last three years and it is nice to become reacquainted with favourite things and small things acquired on travels. I never buy big things because it is too difficult to carry and I only want small little reminder of places I have been.
The boxes below were purchased in Syria- in Damascus. I really do worry about all the people I knew there- are they alive- how hard must their lives be amidst all the destruction and war.
I did manage to put some colour on fabric a few days ago- something that always makes me happy- thinking about what I will do with the colours- do they speak to me- what can I make with the fabric....so many possibilities. The colours are much better in person!
And then to be reacquainted with printing done in the past- simple but effective !
I am hoping to be a little inspired in the next few days and really get stuck into some work , making new things.
I wish all of my faithful readers a safe and peaceful 2017- hope your year is filled with inspiration and kindness- I feel the world needs much more kindness and empathy and awareness.
Don't forget there is still time to enrol for my online Linocutting class which commences after the first week in 2017. See my previous blog post for details or message me.
