Another dotty one for my #arteachdaypost. It has a certain calm serenity with a little prickle of vibrance and I have posted it because it is the exact opposite of my current state and the running of the last few days, which have been challenging to say the least.

A challenging day
I’ve had a difficult day. Busy and demanding for the most part and deteriorating to “challenging” to put it mildly. The biggest culpits were technology and the fact that four of my pieces at the framers in preparation for Dorset Art Weeks have got damaged – one at least irreparably and two other fair-size works I have doubts that they can be returned to their pristine state, So I wait anxiously till tomorrow. I had hoped to work on getting this and my other websites into better shape and uploading mor images, but my time has been eaten by woes!
Yesterday’ #arteachday post was this drawing from last year.
A Little Bit of Bread and No Cheese
Today’s #arteachday post this morning was a little drawing in ink on paper collaged on to Khadi paper. Apart from my #Letter365 piece I havenot been able to work much today. I’m concentrating on preparations for Dorset Art weeks which is only 17 days away now. There’s lots to do and i will have to settle to the fact that a lot won’t get done. C’est la vie! I’m off up the studio now for a little bit of planning and prep work.
Still a bit dotty
My #arteachday post on Twitter was this experiment using masking tape. I was just testing out some making tape on various papers with my field drawings in mind and this spotty MT Washi tape my son gave me as a present started producing some interesting results so I started playing before reverting to the original ideas and purposes.
Slightly All The Time
No. Really. It is there! You have to look very carefully and maybe click on it to enlarge, but it is there. You can perhaps see why I have been struggling to get good photographs of my work! This was today’s #arteachday posting on Twitter and I immediately had a reply from someone that they couldn’t see anything! Admittedly it is a bit minimalist but I can see it standard size on my PC. It is another of my repetitive “field” drawings. For those of you who still can’t see it here is a detail:
The Dream’s Malfunction
Today’s #arteachday post was this “field” drawing from a week or two ago that I have just today managed to get a fairly good photgraph of.
A Small Homage to Max Ernst
I finally managed to get a half-decent photograph of this one that I did 10 or so days ago. I have been really stuggling to get things correctly reproduced but I am getting some that are good enough for now. My interest in Max Ernst has been renewed because of my collage work, but this recurring theme in his work of the moon or sun disk has been haunting me for a while.
Gate Gap Chase Bait
#arteachday piece to gather in the May-o is this little A5 drawing of ink on Somerset paper glued onto a stiffer watercolour paper. Goodness knows where the title came from. It originally had a quite different title but then I started to think about the word gap and its connection to gate and how gate is the Norwegian for road and that a gate was originally the gap, the gateway, rather than the thing that closes the gap and Maypoles and…
I changed the subject
Last night’s tweeting about decaying walls and woodwork continued but this morning I changed the subject to marine craft under repair and maintenance and posted this photo I took at West Bay in January
