It will be good to get the paintings in place.. and I do hope that they become a distraction for staff and patients alike... Some of the words have been suggested by staff and patients on the ward.. and all four paintings of the apple tree will have various words on them.
So have been thinking about what to do next... would like to explore representation and dementia a bit more in the future... but have also decided to do a drawing a day if I can... I have also started drawing sessions at one of my local pubs - The Golden Eagle on the corner of Delamere Road in Southsea. Tuesday evening from 7ish onwards - Drink and Draw! For a small fee we supply the art materials, and I give tuition - it's great fun! I have also started an Etsy page for my work too...
Have also been playing my djembe drum a lot recently at gigs - and will be going for another full drum kit lesson next week at the Drum Garden just outside Portsmouth.
Here's some of my 'drawing a day' drawings.. I have been giving some of the work away to the people that I draw... am also seriously thinking about getting a small studio shed built in my little courtyard garden.... so that may well be my next project... watch this space!!
