Talking not Doing

Flower type Things

So I was, I am,┬ábored of scratchy, screaming – abstract non representational orange things (NROT).

But what else to do, something to catch the scratchy screaming feeling (and maybe later not so much) that doesn’t feel that much too close to the bone.

Not everything has to be orange 1

* along with lego watch, toiletries, hand made felt bag, hearing aid stuff, clothes, puzzle book and the bag it was all in. I may have forgot stuff.

There have been words.

Fallen among thieves

Someone has introduced me to Acrylic Flow painting. Im not sure if i am very very sorry or not. At least I haven’t bought any more art supplies. Read the rest of this entry »

The next book?

I signed up for the Japanese wood block print and book binding course for the second time, and have a vague idea what kind of books we might be making. I was doodling on the train the other day and came up with these.
