I was out in the garden a large part of the day, coming in mid afternoon to work on the computers – a bit of writing and a bit of fiddling around (as is often the case on a Sunday!).
I had odd jobs to do all morning and then a few minutes drawing before getting on the computers and catching up on my writing. Not a particularly good day for visual art!
I worked off and on all day in my studio; still tackling the large scale pencil drawings. I had to go out during the latter part of the afternoon not quite happy with some of the images I had drawn so I will have to redo them in the morning.
Most of the day was spent in my studio working on the new drawings; often moving between one and another. Strangely for me none of the works are titled yet (although I think a couple had titles when I started them!) other than having a generic one of EXPLORATION – as distinct from INVENTION and IMPROVISATION which I have used for series of similar works in the past.
I visited my father in the early morning and then went out with my wife for much of the remaining day. Not much creative work done except a bit of photography (with my new DSLR camera) and a really tiny amount of writing. And, it goes without saying, the usual evening blogging.
It rained all day so I had to put off the planned early morning gardening and stayed in my studio until the light began to fade at four. I completed one of the six complex “meditative” drawings which I have titled EXPLORATION: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN X AND Y ARE MERGED. This is the work I am least happy with so it is a bit ironic that it was the first to be finished.
No visual art or writing done at all this Saturday (with the exception of what I am writing now!). I did a bit of gardening first thing, went out for a meal with my wife and then returned to the garden. I finally came in during the latter part of the afternoon and then fiddled around on the computers instead of doing anything worthwhile – oh well! Actually I did take a couple of dozen photographs while walking to town so not all is lost!
