Clockwork Heart

Hey all. Life has been on the hectic side lately so today was the first time in ages I’ve actually been able to spend painting. I’m mostly on a mission to get my paintings all finished in time for our exhibition on June 5th. Here’s a few images of what I’ve been up to today.

 

Excuse the mess, it’s still very much a work in progress. The basic form is there but now it just needs realising, so that’s what is on the agenda for tomorrow.

Moleskine sketches!

It’s been so long since I last posted! Sorry about that, dearies! Unfortunately I’ve been lacking a camera for the last few weeks so didn’t have the ability to document any of my work until now. But that is now rectified, so today I’m giving you a little insight into the very beginnings of my paintings.

My ex-boyfriend bought me a moleskine sketchbook for Christmas and it’s proved really useful for capturing ideas before they float off out of my brain forever! It’s a tiny little A6 book so I tend to bring it with me everywhere these days. I’m too precious over my sketchbooks and like to make sure every page is filled with something beautiful so I can archive them and keep them forever. Therefore it’s good to have a book to be decidedly unprecious over where I can be as messy and scribbly as need be.

So these are my paintings in their very, very  embryonic stages. All are autobiographical, a bit twee, a bit surreal, and all rely on symbolism to tell a story. Two of them are works in progress as paintings currently and are hopefully going to be included in the show in June.
