Spring sparks new creativity

I have now finished three new paintings for a forthcoming exhibition in June. I had always wanted a studio/shed to paint in where I could make as much mess as I wanted and treat it almost like going to work. But for me this doesn’t work. I can’t afford to rent a workspace, so since I have realized my eldest son has definately flown the nest, his bedroom has become my studio. And…. I have realised that my concentration comes in short bursts. Whilst a purpose made workspace would be great, the advantage of working at home is that I can dip in and out whenever I want. If I suddenly have the urge to make a mark, put a colour down, I can in an instant. And…. I can also get the dinner done in between, weed the garden and hang out the washing!
