Wandering, and wondering



This started life during last month's AEDM.
Since then I've added more paint,
and a couple of chipboard pieces,
with text from a 1930's exploration journal.
Nothing deep and wondrous,
just a random piece of art.

There's also the words below,
which I call The Mórrígan's Tears.
It was inspired by something which appeared in a dream,
but which I've yet to figure out.

Lady, Lady,
Weep for me
for I am blind,
too blind to see.
A linen square
black as night,
with silver moonlight
lace adorned

AEDM 2014 - The end!

Woohoo, I made it.
30 continuous days of creativity.
Sometimes easy,
sometimes not so.
But before I go any further,
I'd like to say a big thank you
to Leah for organising it again.

This is still very much a work in progress,
but I think the dress is about finished. 

Today was spent applying a couple of coats
of broken china to tone down the blueness.
I still need to finish the face, hands, hair and wings.
And maybe do something with the background.
But it will be finished.
One day....

AEDM Day 29

Industriana clock workshop today
at the Cubby Hole.
This is the result.

It's the first workshop I've done in a long while,
and it wiped me out.
Early night methinks.

AEDM Day 28

The artists lament

Brush in hand,
paints are ready
acrylic smell
is just so heady

Had a head full of ideas,
wondrous images
now it's like a book
full of blank pages

Here I sit,
broken hearted
Nice blank canvas,
can't get started.

AEDM Day 27

Just scraping some paint around
and added a couple of bits of paper.
No idea where this is going,
possibly something to do with journeys
or travels

AEDM Day 25 & 26

I tried to post yesterday from my phone, but it didn't work.
So you get two day's worth today,
you lucky people!

 So here we are.
Another two evenings of tissue, glue, paint,
and watching things dry!

Not sure who this is for yet.

AEDM Day 24

Decided to give the painting a rest for today,
and get messy with paper instead.
Added a fabric spine to the book covers,
and bound an insert from some nice writing paper.
Now waiting for everything to dry.
