Happy New Year..

"Have a very good reason for everything you do."

(Sir Laurence Olivier)

Work in progress..
Final piece
Some of the decisions we make as artists are quite remarkable, it is only when we look back at photograph's (or recordings) of 'work in progress' that we begin to understand/or not, some of the journey's we make. Small adjustments to colour, balance and positioning are so important to who we are, where our mind was at that specific moment in time.

'I had good reason for the decision I made at that specific moment in time'... (Try and explain that to someone who isn't an artist...)

On that thought.. 

I want to wish you all a very 'Happy and Creative New Year' from sunny Cornwall ~ Julie 

Thank you to Heike Gerbig - Gerdiary.blogspot  for the quote.

Angels Wings...

Looking at medieval church angels gave me inspiration... 
What started off with a simple idea... 
I then got carried away and made them much larger than I intended..
I should have made them in the summer when papier mache dries out much quicker...
