Sometimes being busy can come as a blessing

Firstly thank you to everyone who sent me messages of sympathy about Poppy. I really appreciate them and it helps to know there are people out there thinking of you.

It has turned out to be a rather busy week which as I said in the subject of this post, can be a blessing. It has kept my mind distracted from missing Poppy and made sure I focus on other things.

So this picture shows my floor yesterday. I have been trying to pull some things together and sort some work out for a exhibition i'm included in that starts next Friday. I will post the flyer for the event in a seperate post. It's called Domestic Landscape.

I do find it jolly hard to produce work I am happy with. I think I always believe there should be some weighty concept behind it all. An idea that was drummed into me during my highly conceptual fine art degree. And something I resent greatly. I must relax and remember to love what I do.

I have also been making products for the Art on the Prom event in Felixstowe next Sunday. I do hope the weather holds as it should be a really good day at the seaside if its sunny and lovely for us all. And I would be very excited if I sold lots of lovely things to lots of lovely people!

I know what you mean about the Degree thing, but that isn't the real world where you have to get things done and make money. I think if you have fun and enjoy what you do it comes out in your work. I'm not sure that customers want something burdened with meaning.
Anyway that's my serious moment over with. Hope you have a great time.
