Welcome to my art journey continuing after a long interval. I loved CREATING art as a child, won the odd award and had my work selected for display in the ‘glass frame” in primary school. In High School, I either adored or hated my current art teacher… and topped the school in Art, had my major work chosen for Art Express and naturally went onto become a Visual Art Teacher. I taught for 15 years becoming Head of Visual Arts in my last school, had a family, became really busy and now retired.
I am now reclaiming my physical and mental space for drawing and painting. I have cleaned and set up my old big easel and a smaller portable one near the outside sliding door in the games room. I pulled out the old paints, brushes, paper and pencils reorganising them in the Chinese cupboard. My son uses one of the bedrooms, a family room and the games room on this floor to entertain his friends; but I am going to slowly and resolutely make this my DRAWING ROOM.
…and all those great pieces of art gear I had almost forgotten. The circle turns again.
