Whew, that was an unexpected blog break.
What's the news? I've starting a course in Visual Art and Contemporary Craft. I'm four weeks in, one day a week. And I love it so much. Mrs Picklesticks gave me some great insights into the course; she did Textiles and I'm doing Painting and Drawing.
It's such a joy to do art for a whole day a week. And there's homework too.
We're concentrating on drawing at the moment: line drawing, mostly in pen. There is also painting (water colour, acrylics, oils), mixed media, printing and digital images.
Did I say how much I love it?
My other news is that I've resigned from work. Well, I've given notice that I'm leaving at the end of term. Gosh, was that ever a relief.
I need a change and just want to do something else. So I'm going to do art for a while and then think about another job. I'm throwing caution to the wind!
Gosh! And I missed my 2nd blogoversary! More later!
