April 13, 2011 Artist Responses, The Collection 1 Comment

Ready to use ,threaded needles from Woolworths

Needle cases from Platt Hall

I feel very sad that I have neglected this blog for so long. The students did a wonderful show for the Platt Hall project before Xmas and due to circumstances beyond our control the project has lain dormant since. I have been thinking a lot about ways to try and keep this project going, and I finally have a little time in my workshop to look at my own response to Mary’s collection One thing I have been doing as often as I can are watercolour paintings of my collection (will add photos later), It feels right to sit and quietly paint in watercolours, I was very inspired by Mary Greg’s Nature Diaries. I am also looking a “mending kits” and  needle cases..or damage repair kits. Will add some tests to the blog at the end of the week.

    I can’t wait to see your watercolours.
    Graham Parry from York University who edits the Guild of St George ‘Companion’ newsletter sent me a copy of the December issue which has a piece I wrote ages ago – and they’ve included a nice picture of one of Mary’s watercolours from her Nature Diaries in Sheffield – it reminded me of our lovely day there.
    I’ll keep looking to see if you put any pics up.
