Last week heralded in spring with the vernal equinox on Monday, followed by the start of British Summer Time. These celestial events put me in mind of a body of work I made in June 2011 titled Oh! Callipso, in which I set out to take a break from slow work for a week. I worked very quickly using any materials I had to hand, anywhere I was. I thoroughly enjoyed the liberating sensation and produced a lot of work in just a few days. Later, I showed the work at open studios that year, and everyone ignored it! - so I felt it was worthless and hid it all away.
I began to think about Oh! Callipso whilst pondering the mysteries of the springtime tilt of our planet towards the sun in the northern hemisphere; so, I had a revisit and found, to my surprise, that there was a lot there I still find really interesting today. It's nice to see a bit of colour again, and I am loving the freshness. Perhaps it's time for me to have another brain-storming session for a week and see what comes of it.
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
