I have been working on the "challenge" I asked the local electrician if he could put his rubbish in a box and he kindly left it for me to pick up. I spent the next few days pulling bits apart it was truly cathartic as awful things were happening in my life. Well the "studio" began to encroach on the House as a whole. I was though amazed at the shapes and intricacies which were inside the pieces so decided to photograph them. Then realised how many "faces" there were: It was then that complications set in...my friend Trish would have found the solution out of the problem very rapidly, her skill is to set herself a difficult task and then see it through to the end. I tend to set the bar considerably lower...well I made a book and covers out of the switch plates I now think that the whole book idea may become a "book in a box"....who knows I have one more day to make my decisions...oh what a dilemma!I did however make a bag out of beads and electic wire .

It has been.....since my last.........! I have been busy getting ready for an exhibition at D.T.A.S. which is an amateur art society, I have mentioned before mentioning the newsletter...well now I am to be resposible for the web page when it is set up...what a learning curve that may turn out to be. I have been told that the blogging experience helps?! These torsoes are still unfinished and the middle one is just with black lines, but will take photos when they are finished. I am finding it such fun , the shape determining the way I am painting. I am working in acrylic and have a large painting in my head to be part of the installation. I will talk about my new dolls next time....may be tomorrow.
