At Art Therapy we watched a documentary on Brian Clarke, who is a renowned artist who works with stained glass. And if you like boxes, then try Joseph Cornell - I think he will inspire you.
I wanted a flower design, but I didn't want it to be too complex as I have to use gutta, a relief paint, to outline the whole thing.
Next week we should get going on the actual painting. We've had people dropping in to say hello to us newbies, which is really nice. I also got an invite to the Christmas party!
When I drove home tonight from the Art Therapy there was the most beautiful sunset. I looked at the clouds bathed in a red and golden glow, the sky looked so magical. I was so engrossed in it that I almost missed the green light. Oops. Everything was serene until a fighter jet roared past overhead. They often do that, think they head up to Scotland, do a U turn and come back.
Well I started this an hour or so ago, it got interrupted by a skype call. Now my bed is calling me, I hope I get a lie in tomorrow. The forecast is for a dry, sunny day.... I can only hope! Thanks for stopping by.
