Art Diary: Week Ending 20th September


I did a bit of gardening (not enough) and then a little work on the computer (again not enough) and then out with my wife for the remainder of the day. This time next week we will be on the coast. I haven’t seen the sea since the Artshed gallery in New Milton closed down many years ago as I used to walk to the cliff top after delivering my paintings.

Note to myself when I get back I must find some new galleries to show my work. This year has been a bit hopeless as I have been far too absorbed with photography and digital art.



I spent the morning sorting out some of my paintings and then devoted the afternoon to writing, with the usual blogging in the evening. Not particularly exciting I know!



I was out in the morning and then sorted out some more paintings before working on the computers for the rest of the day; although I am not sure if I got a huge amount done.



This week is not going to be very productive – I am not sure if it is worth going on holiday as there are so many things to get done before you go! I manage to photograph two A2 sketch books of drawings today. They were done in 1978/1979 and the drawings were very uneven in quality. I want to get two more books photographed by the end of the week. The rest of the day was spent editing photographs and drawing on the computer.



I was out all morning and then had to tackle a series of odd jobs when I got in, some of which were art related but most had house or forthcoming holiday connections – very little actual creative work done.



I was preoccupied with all the last minute preparations for our holiday today which left very little time for work. I photographed two more A2 sketch books and then had to do them again because I accidentally deleted them on the computer while sorting out my cloud storage and then scanned some small sketch books – including one I can’t remember even doing. A little computer art in the late afternoon and a little more blogging in the early evening.



Off on holiday today (the first for ten years) so a morning of frantic plant watering and then we were away. This does mean no art for a week although I may do a bit of tablet art if I get any idle time and I will certainly take photographs! Hopefully a great many!
