Well I can't believe I'm actually back posting a thread.
I've had a real bad case of lost muse
for 6 months, mainly due to a lifestyle change that's taking place oh so slowly. Yes, we're moving to Perth, Australia in January. Hubby left 7 weeks ago to begin work while I remain here in New Zealand until the kids see out the school year, which ends in December. Not sure I like hubby being so far away but we talk every night by phone and text during the day so it isn't so bad.
All this time not being able to paint anything was starting to bother me but my mind had been too clogged with the Aussie venture and getting used to life without hubby around. Then 3 weeks ago I got a call from an out of town gallery wanting to show my work. They accepted 6 of the 7 works I took in last week, and they sold the first one on saturday. I was real pleased. That same week my hubbys ex boss commissioned me to do a work for him, so I'm inspired and back in the studio at last.
So I've begun work on the last of my unfinished Dance series to begin with. It's a 1/3 of the way through and I'm really enjoying it. Not too complicated either, which is good as I'm slightly rusty. Once that's done I'll start on the new commission.
Aaahhhh.... It's great to feel that paint smear across the canvas again.
I'll post a pic when finished. In the mean time I'll pop back and try and catch up on whats on show here at WetC. Hope everyone is well and still happily painting away.
Nice to be back chums
