I am home now, from a vacation on the east coast. Staying with my parents is always wonderful – not only do we seem to pack so much into the time we spend with them, I always seem to come back home feeling refreshed (and I am sure they feel absolutely pooped in exchange!)
I sadly didn’t manage to get anything arty done while I was with them (Other than the start of a logo, which was shared in my previous post) but I did manage to get a bit of foraging done. They live on an absolutely wonderful coast line with shells, stones and other interesting looking ‘things’ that I am not even sure what they are. So, I am looking forward to having a play with some compositions on board in the next few days.
I also stumbled across another more formed composition idea, so need to get out the house and find some sticks!
I’ve also looked into setting up an etsy store – apparently, I already had one, so I am going through the motions of changing it all up so that the name fits with what I am doing now. It’ll take a bit more work yet, but I’ll hopefully have some paintings up on there to share with you all soon.
While I was away, I did a lot of reading, so I have set up another blog for book reviews. I thought I would share the link with you, in case that sort of thing interested you. I’d rather keep the two blog ideas apart. This will always be my main focus, art, but I enjoy sharing my thoughts on what I read also. So figured, why not!?
Also, I have been rather confused about what I have been sharing where as I’ve been trying to keep up with various places on the social media front. So, I have had to streamline and cut out a few of them. I am wondering if Twitter is really a good place for artists to share their works or if people have found Instagram more worth-while? I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on social media for artists. What has worked for you and what hasn’t?
I’ll update with something visual as soon as I can.
