Luckily I managed to attract his attention and took this shot of him and his lovely partner.
Those of you who have been kind enough to have followed this blog for many years will remember Ben from his exuberant art work that we used to do together in my garden studio, formerly my DH's darkroom, which sadly we don't have any more.
They were such fun times and I could never have imagined his Prom day back then. We were so proud of him, he is a very remarkable young man, and we were delighted to have the privilege of being there.
Ive been reading quite a few blogs lately where people have been writing that they've lost their creative mojo, and I understand how they feel. I seem to have come to a dead stop on my main project and can't bring myself to push it forward. To try and help this I decided to reorganise my work that I hung in the flat three years ago and see if that helped.
This is now the view I wake up to in the morning, so I hope it will inspire me
......especially as this was one of my most favourite pieces, which I actually really loved doing from start to finish, a rare achievement for me. I'm pleased to say I finally found the driftwood stick I wanted to hang it on, it only took a couple of years!!
This piece has also been hanging in the shadows, unloved and ignored, I'm beginning to like it now.
I bought a Muji perspex frame for this piece, over a year ago and finally mounted it today.
The lights and the Ikea shelf were bought for the mock up pieces of the current project, in the left hand corner, but they work just as well for the framed piece.
I wish all of those who are a bit jaded and uncertain of the way forward good luck, these periods always clear eventually, I hope my new surroundings will do it for me.
