Double Diamond

A few weeks ago we had an online lecture with Simon Hill talking about the Double Diamond! I understood it as Working twice as hard as ever than before and pushing myself again ! So I am trying very hard to push my painting twice as far as before.

Today is one of those days.

This painting I started in the first few weeks of joining my MA. I made about 4 paintings within the space of a couple of hours. Paintings of sky and grass!

I loved it so much even though I had ran out of paint, but I felt I couldn’t call it finished. Just good sky wasn’t enough to call it a good painting . I have looked at it for nearly the two years thinking I would spoil it if I tried to do anything I’m with it.

But today I decided to create a local landscape running along the theme for my exhibition

It’s not quite finished but hope I have done the sky justice.

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.
