SO FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS I FEEL LIKE I HAVE SUDDENLY CAUGHT UP WITH MY CREATIVE THOUGHTS. AFTER WEEKS OF TRYING TO GET MY SCREENS WORKING I FINALLY HAVE THE CORRECT EXPOSING TIME AND LIGHTS SO MY GARAGE IS NOW MY EXPOSING STUDIO WHICH FEELS GREAT TO BE ABLE TO CREATE MY OWN SCREENS WITHOUT INDUSTRY HELP 🙂

————————————————————–

WHAT I FOUND THIS WEEK?

SO I CAME ACROSS THIS AMAZING SINGER IN ONE OF THE CHARITY SHOPS IN KIRKCUDBRIGHT THIS IS WHAT I LOVE ABOUT LIVING HERE. CHARITY SHOPS IN LITTLE ARTY TOWNS ARE SO QUIRKY AND THEY REALLY UNDERSTAND QUALITY ITEMS. I HAD BEEN PONDERING OVER THE SINGER FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS, THEN MY OWN SEWING MACHINE STOPPED WORKING I THOUGHT WHY NOT 🙂 THE 1955 MACHINE IS THE BEST MACHINE I HAVE USED,  IT IS SO SMOOTH AND WHO EVER HAD IT BEFORE ME HAS TAKEN REALLY GOOD CARE OF HER. THEY EVEN ADDED A MOTOR AND PEDAL TO BRING IT UP TO SPEED. AS YOU CAN TELL, I LOVE IT.

I ALSO PICKED UP THIS BARGIN JUMPER CHAIN KNIT IN YELLOW, COZY!

ALSO IN MY WANDERS I WENT INTO THE WHITEHOUSE GALLERY ON THE HIGH STREET. I WAS INSPIRED BY THE DELICATE DRAWING DETAIL OF A LOT OF THE WORK AND I ACTUALLY FOUND MYSELF WANTING TO BUY WORK WHICH HAVE NEVER THOUGHT WAS FINANCIALLY POSSIBLE. THIS GALLERY IS REALLY APPROACHABLE AND THE WORK IS REALLY SPECIAL. MY FAVOURITE ARTIST IN THE GALLERY IS ANNA WRIGHT, HER GENTLE SENSE OF HUMOUR AND ILLUSTRATION IS DELIGHTFUL. HER WORK HAS A ESSENCE OF REALISM IN NATURE AND SURROUNDINGS.

ONE FINAL THING 😀

I OFTEN MAKE REFERENCE TO MUSIC IN MY BLOGS AND IT REALLY HELPS TO KEEP ME POWERING THROUGH ARTWORK LATE AT NIGHT, I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO STICK TO WHAT MAKES YOU WORK BEST.

AS WRITING THIS BLOG THE VIDEO BY MADEON -“THE CITY” CAME ON THE MUSIC CHANNEL AND THE IMAGERY IN IT IS SO PRETTY, A HAZE OF COLOUR I THOUGHT THE STYLING AND SCENE OF THE HOW VIDEO IS COMPOSED IS REALLY ON TREAD AND IS GREAT INSPIRATION FOR ANY DESIGNER NEED THAT BIT OF A PUSH – FIND IT ON – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqUBmeFn7qM
