Finally, a new post! I haven`t gotten round to photographing all the stuff I`ve been doing lately, mainly because I`ve been trying to get everything ready for going to Chile. Can`t believe we`ll be in Santiago in 4 days time!! It`s been 3 years!!! And it`s as much my home as N. Ireland to me, so I`m starting to get really excited. It`s only hitting me now, since I never get a moment with the 3 kids. Off to the doc. tomorrow am with 2 of them. Nothing serious, but travelling long distances with kids is no small thing, so just to be on the safe side.... On your own, it`s a doddle, but with small children...... I don`t think there`s actually going to be any room for anything for me in my hand luggage, what with nappies, hankies, wipes, a change of clothes for everyone, just in case!! (not Hernán though!) etc, etc. But it`s an adventure! Roll on!
I`ve been doing more stuff concentrating on figures lately and toying around with a few ideas. My workbook is full of ideas for new paintings, so hopefully I`ll get to put these into practice when I come back!!
Will also post some monoprints I`ve been doing. (I`d forgotten how fun and interesting they can be, since you really never know what the final effect is going to be.) Really enjoyed those and think it`s something I want to do a lot more of alongside my painting.
Anyway, !Nos vemos pronto! !Viva Chile!
