The Poem of My October - this is a slideshow with voice-over by me, of my daily paintings from October this year. If you click the arrow in the middle of the picture above the show should play. I made one of these for my July daily paintings (click here to see and hear The Poem of My July) - I am still cringing a little at the sound of my own voice - but very much liking having a different way to show my paintings.
Hat Status: after a terrible couple of days, during which, my furry (fake) hunter hat was totally AWOL, it has now been found (thanks to my Bear), and now also has paint on it.
Reading Status: There may be a reason why some books are free on kindle....
Writing Status: Lists, forms and tweets - and enjoying giving all my daily paintings titles. All the paintings from my first year of daily painting were called for the day they were painted - much more fun to name them - layers of meaning on top of layers of paint.
Energy Status: Working on being more aware of what is going on around me and where best to put my energy consciously. A bit hit and miss. Cooking a lot more food from scratch.
Coffee Status: I thoroughly recommend the Lastbus Works Canteen, New Pitsligo, Scotland - a quirky, vegan, cafe/restaurant/venue - good strong coffee, lovely food, sparkly waitresses and an inventor genius has made lots of really cool things - which, I will not spoil by telling here - you will need to go discover on your own. Open weekends over winter - best phone first.
