Artworks 11th Anuual Exhibition at Rougham Barn, 11 September to 3 October 2010, with ‘Artists Making an Exhibition of Themselves’ on Saturday 2 October 2010 – an event when ‘Artworks’ artists set up temporary ‘studios’ in front of their work at the exhibition. Artworks is a group of thirty professional East Anglian Artist.

in the meantime, i am looking for paid work this summer… i saw a job advertised today, for gallery assistants, offering daytime shifts of four hours @ £5.97 per hour = £23.88 – £10 petrol (commuting) = £13.88… {sigh}

at the weekend i visited the studio of an internationally acclaimed potter, but he is now producing lots of paintings. he said that he was enjoying painting more without the immediate worry of making money from it, much evidenced by the quality and quantity of his output.

after the job search, i felt even less motivated to do any painting (or make any more prints), so instead i baked an apple and blueberry crumble and then decided i would do some more lichen drawings (you can view some of my previous lichen drawings here)… there is no grand idea or concept with drawing, its just very therapeutic…
