I had been thinking of my artwork
recently , and how it has developed from
when i was a teenager . Art has always been with me,
i got my drawing from my dad . Seeing him draw ,
then keeping the piece of wooden board for myself ,
that he made , so i could use myself . I took art and design
as a subject at school , and got a grade A in my final exam .
However , i did not choose to pursue art as a career , i
chose the catering trade - as i loved cooking just a little
more . Which was one of my only regrets in life .
Having said that - things happen for a reason , other life
things take over , and it got pushed aside for my years .
Also realising now , that this blog may not have even
exisited ,and the people who i have met on here -
of which i am eternally grateful to , has made it a
pleasure to do ....
It could have turned out a cooking blog ! !
I have kept some of my artwork , from school - some
25 years ago now !!
So ... i thought i would show you a piece . My subject
was parts of the body - for my exam , done in pastels .
This has been in the attic for years , mounted in an
old frame , which was found in a garage . So my
dad and I varnished the wood .
It was a magazine cutting advertising leg hair remover ,
and because i found the feet difficult to do - i just made it
look like a piece of material was over her feet ! Or maybe ,
i couldn`t be bothered to do it - more likely !!
I tried to get the best picture , without taking it out ,
but there is reflection in parts ....
I am still quite surprised , that it is still in good condition ,
after so many years . And i may just have to get my
pastels out once again !
