The Arts School – the start

So I have been quiet because I have been busy! 

1) the boy who will be 7 months old next week, amazing! 

I could spend all day watching him learn the world! The greatest time consumers!

2) The Little Art on the Green, more details next week


And 3) 

I have started an arts school! 

The Arts School will start running day courses in Drawing and Mark making and Reflective Practise. Come and spend the day on a beautiful farm in East Sussex. 60 acres of woods, fields and lakes. A delicious lunch is included, provided by Sam. So excited! A few spaces left for our intro day on July 8th and confirmed dates to follow!

Word pressing problems

Has anyone else been having problems with their WordPress app? I have not been able to post for a few weeks. Hope it has resolved now! Here’s a bit of what I have been up to recently!

France: markets   
Hastings: getting lost 

Painting: expression and inspiration 

 
Listening to Al Weiwei and Tim Marlow. 

Interesting, though provoking, inspiring 

   
Helping set up, and exhibiting in, a local Arts Exhibion as part of Hailsham Arts Festival.
 If you like my work, or my images and want to use them, please let me know!

Thanks for your time.

First potatos 

This morning I stood in the rain, with my grandfathers fork, digging my first potatos. 

Now they are washed, blanched, iced and packed and in the freezer for later.

Time to paint

This week I  spent two mornings taking part in an art class’s run by the incredibly talented and generous Fiona Graham Mackay

I have not sat down and done an oil painting since I took my A levels (in 1998…) and was surprised by how successful it was, and how much I enjoyed it! 
I feel the reasons I have shied away from oils are time, money and practicality. I intend to explore this beautiful and generous material further!
Everyone go and do an art course, meet up with a friend or three, join a group, whatever you want, but get out there and do some painting, just because it’s good for your soul. 
These are my little paintings, whilst there is allot of space for improvement, I am immensely proud of taking the time for myself, that I haven’t forgotten everything I was taught, and for trying something different. Have a wonderful weekend. Sophie xxx
