Creativity has been much in my thoughts. What drives it? Why does it dry up?  How to rekindle it? My answer to myself is to stop procrastinating, stop doing other things, focus and just start to make some work …. This is where the Art Allotments project helps and instead of just looking at an envelope full of collage scraps  that arrived in my post some days ago  I finally tip it all out and begin to make some collages.  I work fast,  too fast to think… It works. Next I dig out an on going print project that ground to a halt some months back …. The  images are intended eventually for a small artists book … I tidy the etching plates up and print them again in colour. I make some modifications, talk to others and new ideas begin to start emerging from the fog. Hurrah


Artists Cards

Having gone through all the leftovers and bits of prints that didn’t quite work out I have created a collection of  cards all containing a piece of a print. Some have additional drawing; all are collage; everyone is unique. Tomorrow they go to the Discovery Centre in Craven Arms to be displayed and sold in the gallery there. It is a good feeling to make new work  out of work that would otherwise be in the paper recycling box.
