Art Diary: Week Ending 20th December

14/12/2014

I didn’t do the gardening I planned to do (which sums up this year!) and spent most of my time drawing and painting on the computers. Quite a bit was done despite my current tendency of distracting myself with non essential research on the web.

I belatedly did some gardening (mainly plant watering) and then went out shopping with my wife for much of the day, only having time to do a tiny bit of art work in the late afternoon.

I had to go out again and did not get into my study until the afternoon again. I worked most of the time on the computer creating an extended series of art works on a rather controversial theme.

I was out a lot in the morning and planned to write Christmas cards and sort out some paintings in the afternoon but ended up painting on the computer. Like yesterday I did a series of related works, this time exploring the idea of a landscape painted on a wall in a bare room.

I was out in the first part of morning and did various seasonal (finally writing my cards!) and nonseasonal things when I got in: the latter being mainly painting and drawing on the computer.

I had to go out for a short while and then worked on the computers for the rest of the day – putting up with numerous distractions, many of which I created myself.

I went out for the day with my father and sister, painting on the computer when I got home. The end of another week with work unavoidably slowing down because of all the seasonal activities. I still plan to return to my studio for real work in the new year (all being well!).
