Had a grotty couple of days with the kids and myself being ill and the madness of staging a 7th birthday party. All went well though and now I’m back to making preparations for exhibitions. My intention was to paint an impala, but the last few days have been very unproductive and I found myself doodling these little people instead. I think I’d honestly prefer to being creating characters and drawing for children. My motivation towards producing works for exhibition is waning a little. That evil little voice that makes me over concerned about what people think of my work is getting too much airtime at the moment. A fabulous Polish portrait artists I once had a workshop with would say “If it’s not fun, don’t do it” in her loud abrupt, Polish accent. It’s well worth remembering.
