After a slightly eventful last few days, which have involved amongst other things break ups, fire works and hauling a king size mattress up a narrow stair case ( Thanks Emmanuel ) I am finally able to sit down again and do some more writing. Creativity comes in many forms and one of those is writing job applications, I am somewhat obliged to be looking for employment seeing as I am out of work right now. I like being busy it gives my hands something useful to do, they do not like to be idle and neither does their owner.
A lot of painting has been on the go, I seem to be going through a phase of painting actresses from the golden era of cinema, Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida and Lotte Lenya to name but a few. All but one so far have been rendered in oil and it is proving to be a most pleasant and relaxing time.
I am also working on some more spiritually based pieces of work and am pleased with the results so far, again I am dabbling with oil, maybe it’s the pleasant odour that comes with them that I like. Or maybe not.
Whatever the reasons, I am in the process of creating something and that is good.
