Looking back at 2017, First 4 colors of the year, some artings, outings & adventures.
If you're a list-writing, journaling, planning kinda person, if you've explored the online circus of delights that cater to folk like us, you'll understand the mental-quick-sand-iness of it all.
Some lifetimes ago, a sixteen year old version of me failed to get the place in art school that she'd pinned all her early hopes to. Dismissed by the grown ups who'd repeatedly explained: 'being an artist isn't realistic' led to years floating adrift from my calling. (They were wrong. And this isn't what I do, I've come to realise, it's what I am)
In no particular order, these are the realisations that accompanied this project. These were observations I heard over and over again in my thoughts, page after page...
The backdrop to my 2017 is the year long art project, TWELVTY, where each month has its own color. An unexpected side benefit to this is I've got this clear delineation in my time.

New Moon - New Plans I got back from my travels last month so wiped out with jetlag, post giddy-with-deleriously-excited induced tiredfulness that I lost most use out of almost a full fortnight. Then no time at all later I went and took off again. I'm back now, this time long enough to catch my own tail, to take a deep breath. … Continue reading New Moon – New Plans
So you know how it was such a long held wish to visit the US... from early little me watching TV through growing up with the music and the movies and all that hype ... through to a growing realisation the place is enormous and a long way away. And then a number of years later, I … Continue reading living the dream
a few days ago I landed in Seattle, and I fell in love with the place. Not least for the Seattle Center which includes the Experience Music Project - the EMP Museum - the most amazingly shiny building I've ever encountered - which I spent a good hour or so just circling and photographing while oohing and … Continue reading Happy landings, shininess
