I have done absolutly nothing arty in the last three weeks. But yesterday I got two phone calls requesting more pendants (as they had all sold) plus a few other works had sold as well and both galleries need more urgently. Town is busy at this time of the year, we are a bit of a tourist destination here in Napier and we have cruise boats coming in too. Yesterday we had three... we went to have a look at them and my goodness they are big! reminded me of the 'Love Boat'...
I find it hard to get things done in the holidays, with everyone around the house, no real structure to our days and the heat it is very hard to concentrate on anything really (and we have another three weeks or so to go till we go back to work and school). It is weird but in the middle of holiday mode I get this fear, how am I going to cope with going back to work... it seems to take us so long in the holidays to do the basic things let alone fitting 5 hours of work into the day as well.
So anyway today I started doing something, I made 10 more pendants and have thought about some more paintings, but haven't actually done anything about those thoughts... YET. I have this theory that I work with that as long as I do something towards my art work each day (maybe not the weekends) it is a good thing. So I think 10 pendants is a good start.
We are going to my Mum and Dads tomorrow to see my Fairy God Mother, she is up for a visit from Blenheim. She is a real live magical Fairy God Mother... I am lucky. I told Ben I think she is magic and he said "She is magic because she is magic" so she must be with logic like that.
We might also be going to Lake Waikaremoana (really beautiful) for a night or two later this week, and to Wellington to watch the Phoenix play next weekend... haven't really got plans sorted yet but will see what happens.
So even though the days are long and hot here there is not a lot of much happening... will post some pics soon of new works and maybe some holiday shots too.
hope you are all well...
