...it's been an interesting week....

Such a lot has happened since I last posted here!.......and it's been AMAZING!

I've already mentioned that another gallery is hosting an exhibition of my work in November.....well....

...following the expo at the Court Cupboard Gallery....

...the next exhibitor, a superb artist called Melissa Warren offered to take some of my work to put in her studio/gallery "Lemon Blue"!

We took a boxful of pieces down there yesterday, and they'll be in her new display in the next few days.

She has also (very kindly) passed my details on to two other galleries - so we'll see what transpires.....

IT'S ALL HAPPENING!!!


Aside from all of this, I've been getting on with the sketchbooks.....


...they are growing in numbers, and are extremely enjoyable to do.








These are on square books, but I've now started working on A6 rectangular ones - the box arrived a couple of days ago and I dived in straight away!

There are also a few NEW ideas emerging........


......I'm experimenting with some items of jewellery/wearable art and some small bags too.......


Time for some dye-pot fun again!


....will share as soon as the "incubation period" is over.......

I love pebbles too - the sketchbooks look great

Chris Gray Textile Art said...

Yes! ...pebbles are magical things just waiting to be turned into something else......or existing to keep other things company....

I love holding them in my hands....or running lots of small ones through my fingers.....

..and you NEVER find two the same!

Maybe I'll start doing some assemblages with them.....

I thought I'd already left a comment here but I must be mistaken. I love your pink pig books.
