I am making myself scan in drawings from the sketchbooks to share here, I have been drawing like a proper drawing person at the moment – as in all the time. It’s so so good. Things have recently shifted and changed in my life and I have my art and it’s wonderful.
Part of the change is that I got a new job! It was a Friday afternoon send in my application by Monday morning I am scheduled for induction affair. Made all the more easy because I am qualified and have alllllll the paperwork at the ready. I aim to do a good job and learn lots of new skills. Uni still doesn’t go back for a little while so I best keep myself busy.
Rapid Antigen Test – RATs. The new gold.
Buffer for RATs. Also gold.
Vials for gold buffer to be place onto GOLD RATs. Gold facilitators.
Saliva test – less common gold.
Blurry – I accidently spilt my international roast coffee on this sketch.
It’s not a proper blog post without a sketch of hand sanitizer, so here’s the Angel. So antimicrobial.
Waiting area sketch after I got my booster. Passed the time quick.
The nurses here were INCREDIBLE.
I have more but I’m trying to group posts into relevant themes for your enjoyment.
I am in desperate need for new paper – so we shuffled things about and came into Melbourne town so I could get paper:
The people at Melbourne Etching Supplies were so helpful, I’ve come away with a new packet of paper that I cannot wait to get home and begin work on. I’ve been doing a lot of drawing practice and sketching over this last week and have a few solid ideas that need to be realised and soon.. before I explode!
I have many more sketches – but still cannot find them all!
TWENTY FOURTEEN is on view from tomorrow the 23rd of August until the 26th of September. This exhibition is a showcase of all the artists represented by Scott Livesey Galleries – here is a link to a catalogue of the works that will be in this exhibition, which was also handed out at the Melbourne Art Fair last week. LINK. It is such a beautiful catalogue! I have my woman on bed drawing in this exhibition, with a wonderful quote from Rachel Power on my work in the catalogue.
I have many sketch books that are filled up and I keep meaning to share them, but there are so many and I try to keep each post themed and then I just get overwhelmed or there is something else I have to tend to – Toddler, deadline, laundry – don’t forget to be social Lily.
Toddler has been demanding that I draw her lately.
“Mumma, draw me, draw me mumma, MUMMA DRAW ME!”
( FYI she is now sitting in my lap and we are fighting for the desk space.. Talk about multi tasking future employer poeple! )
Recently I purchased what I refer to as ‘proper paints’ – they are amazing. ( David Hockney uses them, I was told by the lovely man in the art store.) So this was a good opportunity to try them out. I was in my painting shed for hours just blissing out on both of these amazing new experiences!
