It is December and the silly season is upon us ... and once again I am completely disorganised. At present I would rather be working in the studio but have been so weary from hard work on the land, that I drag my feet a little there too. I think for the next month at least I will be happy to post once a week.
It was wonderful having Fiona as my blogging initiator - but boy, what an act to follow. I think I have only just worked out that it is okay if I don't get round to posting as often as she and Barry do ....... Maybe once we have finished clearing our land and are in the 'maintenance only' stage of living here, I will spend more time in the studio and have more of interest to show and tell.
I wanted to make some more of my 'standing stones' stories. There are a couple in the shop over in Maleny but I haven't had any around at home to play with. I cut and folded these yesterday and now that they are up and standing, I can see what else they need. Some need stitching, some need piercing and so on. It will happen over the next few weeks but this week and next I really must concentrate on Fiona's and my next collaborative piece - our thirteen envelopes. We gave ourselves till before Christmas and that is approaching at a rate of knots. I really wish I had worked on mine when we made the envelopes together as my inspiration was running high. I am just not sure where I tucked it.
Fiona and I have a play day at the end of this week and we were going to head to Brisbane to see a couple of exhibitions. We are however, going to spend the day making a solid start on our project. I am sure that once we start, the ideas will return. At least I hope so.
Here below are some of the photos I took of the second state of some of my 'standing stories' - still work to be done but I am liking the way the rusted papers work in with them. I want to print some black and white ones next.
