I used to spend all day and every day working with paints and glazes, ceramics and kilns. In those days I enjoyed my work as an artist instructor, my wife and I had our own studio - Studio Minerva.
Recession took it away from us and we both got real jobs. That was nearly 20 years ago, now it is time to break out the brushes ...
I am the editor of The Decorative Folk Artist, the quarterly newsletter of the British Association of Decorative and Folk Art, BADFA. But although I am surrounded by painters I rarely get to indulge. Today I went to an altered art class run by Andy Skinner, we spoke of times past, present and future.
Now I must paint.
This blog keeps separate my writing (scratchypen.wordpress.com), motoring (kim53.blogspot.com) and arty stuff. Here we go!
(Oh, the name of the blog - maybe I'll explain someday)
