just how did it happen to be November already ? time really has flown - inbetween making lots of new work & lots of cuddles with Archie my grandson this year has about gone, I've not even had time to come on this site....note to self - must try to find some time for me so i can visit here more often. Supposed to be tiding my walk in wardrobe - while eric is busy reinsulating the loft - but i figured i'd be naughty & come on here instead....no telling Eric!
been so busy I haven't been on here for months ...i'm looking forward to going to the faery fest in a couple of weeks -I've made lots of new work & look forward to see what sort of reaction they get. Is anyone else going - if so it'd be great to say hi
been busy doing some mosaics - not made one for years but one of the galleries i have my sculptures in asked if i could do a chicken mosaic -so while i had all my equiptment out i made one of my dog - then thought it might be an idea to make a few examples of popular dogs with the idea of doing commissions for people of their animals - all comments hugely appreciated - not looking for praise here genuinely want honest opinions...they measure 12" x12"
unbelievable just where does time fly too? last thing i knew i'd got back from camping in cornwall ...now i'm planning where to go in july ...having had two fab weeks in wales in march- whats all that about....it seems that every time i go to sit down on the computer i get distracted by something else.
i've been working none stop since about late september - lots of new galleries wanting my work - unfortunatly all sale or return - but theres more chance of them selling in galleries than stuck in my studio. sadly 3 of the galleries i had work in have had to close recently due to the climate so i have an influx of work. typical though whenever i get an order for work you can guarentee its what i've just sent to a different gallery! Along with my faeries i have been making lots of different animals including- donkeys,sheep,pigs,dogs,cats,ducks etc - i even made some giraffes -they were fun to make.(look on the for sale page on my website to see some exaxmples www.karen-williams.co.uk ) i've also had fun making stained glass faeries & butterflies - & remarkably still have all my fingers!
At the moment i'm making a set of really big faeries - they are huge - about 4 foot tall -just spent 5 hours painting a faerie -many more hours left to go but i thought i'd better take a break as i was going cross eyed
anyway i guess i need to get back to painting....oh ok maybe 5 mins more to catch up to what everyones been up to ............
just got back from two weeks in cornwall...had a fantastic time - unfortunatly the weather was awful...only one sunny day ...there was just so much rain & wind ...so much so we had to buy a new tent as the wind was so strong it snapped the tent poles !!!....but as i said i had a great time seemed to spend the time wishing i lived by the sea in some quite & remote part of Cornwall...anyone want to do a house swap from cornwall to Nottingham?...no - thought not !!!
