Saturday Reading

I have decided to spend the day reading, since the weather is so lovely outside, but still a bit nippy, I have placed myself by the window on the arm chair to read in the sunshine. I started reading a book called ‘Matched’ by Ally Condie last night, and have got through more than half of it already. It’s a great book so far and can’t wait to find out what happens.

It’s not always easy reading when you have a fluff ball distracting you…

I am enjoying some ‘me’ time the weekend then hopefully getting back into the swing of creating next week. I have already started a new project that I hope to finish very soon to show you all!


What I’ve been up to today…

Good evening, everyone!

I don’t usually like to do blog posts if I haven’t got something visual to contribute…. but today we didn’t get back from visiting family in Birmingham until after 6, so it was too late to photograph any of my art progress, and I was quite tired and cold, too!

So, after we got in, I tended to the cats with food and hugs and kisses… then started texturing some canvases and smaller canvas boards. I have in progress two mother and daughter paintings approximately 9×11 inches, and a couple of 8×8 inch and 5×7 inch canvas boards (which I’m not sure what I’m doing with yet.) The mother and daughter paintings will hopefully be finished tomorrow so I can get them out ready for mothers day.

The reason I have slacked so much the last couple of days is because I have been helping my boyfriend come up with his new band name. He left his old band about 3 months ago as he just couldn’t get along with them, and has now formed a new and improved one! His song writing has gone through the roof and (I know I’m biased) I am sure they are bound to get the crowds going once they start gigging.
Anyway, after 3 long months of trying to come up with a new band name, they have finally settled on ‘Silent Lights.’ It’s amazing that they have come to an agreement with a name, as every time a suitable name came along we realised another band had already snapped it up! I am so happy that they’ve came up with something, so now we can officially get the ball rolling! I enjoy helping Jamie with his band as much as I love working on my artwork (well not as much, but nearly!) and they will hopefully be getting into the studio within the next month and having a photo shoot at the end of the month.

Although they haven’t yet got any music up yet, they will do soon, so if you would like to become a fan of theirs on facebook just click the link at the left, or above, or here.
Jamie does have a myspace that he uploads his own recordings too, nothing too snazzy but just rough structures to his amazing songs. If you would like to check them out, click here!

I will definitely be having some art-related blog posts up tomorrow, but until then, good night!
