Reading

I’ve really enjoyed reading these new books I have bought adding to my collection of Women Artists. Kathe Kollwitz , Dame Laura Knight Portraits, Voyaging Out, British Women Artists from Suffrage to the Sixties, even a book Women who read are dangerous, I thought was an amusing title, but inside its full of beautiful portraits of women reading, and their stories. I think it is going to captivate me for a while. Most recently yesterday I bought a book, The Artists Garden, about the artists at home and at work and the artists community. I could have done with having this before I started my essay. I am not sure if I have enough time now to read it, or include anything from it. I do know that one book is leading to another, as I am finding more and more women artists work that I find so inspiring and thought provoking. I would like to set myself a challenge of producing 100 paintings, no matter how small, one from every inspirational women artist I have been researching, with a short description of why I have been attracted to that particular painting or her life. This challenge will give me an opportunity to experiment with composition, colour, shape and form.

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
