I had the fortune to go to the West Park Place WASPS open studios on Saturday....Looking at art, and nosing into peoples space is a nice way to spend an afternoon!
I went to see Lisa, who makes fabulous silver, slate and gold jewellery, which I only wish I could afford!
I fell in love with the work of Christine Clark (pictured) and Jo Arskey, (not to be confused with the fabulous illustrations of Jo Askey :p) and again, only wish I had spare cash to spend on art. Repeating a little mantra of 'you can't eat art' all the way around seemed to help a little....although it was repeated with a sulky pout on my face.
So, now, high on the smell of oils and the visions of carefully collected clutter, I have upped the hunt for a studio space I can call my own (or our own, as Claira and Amy are also on the hunt)...my little cupboard is not working as, well it is just not working. It is a cupboard and I store things in there, bring them out and take over the whole flat with making things, and never put them away. But, ever concious of making too much mess, I control what I make, keep things simple and never paint....and right now it is making me a little crazy...frustrated....watch this space I guess....we viewed one yesterday and looking at another....fingers crossed....
