Day 11

Oh, my goodness, this part of the week is flying in. I was up and into the studio early this morning, the sun was shining, and I didn’t want to be too distracted by the sunshine. I worked all day, with minor distractions for delicious (and gluten free) food. Coffee was great too, and some cake … Well I have been working hard! I organised a little mini gel plate workshop for some of the other residents at the Fish Factory which was fun too. Work really progressed today, did lots of prints and continued working with some of the small and larger collages. I was struggling a little yesterday with the collages, but today things seemed to fall into place much better. I guess that some days are just like that, some days things work and others I feel like throwing everything away. Perhaps I put myself under too much pressure to get more things done while I am here, not to waste any time. But I realised whatever I complete here it isn’t the end of the experience. I have really found the time and space in a new place to be great to concentrate and think about nothing else but me and my work. I am grateful to those many people who have helped make that possible. Here is today’s page, slightly influenced by the Fish Factory Café’s great music being played throughout the day.
