Welcome to the blog

Hello and welcome to the first blog post on the site. Hopefully, it is the first of many because I like the idea of keeping an art journal to document and record my art journey and practice, and being able to share it with you, my readers. Through this, I hope it will motivate and inspire me to create more artworks. Sounds like a good idea, don’t you think?

At the start of 2015 was when I decided to restart my art career and treat it seriously and professionally. I must admit that it has been a long and slow process in doing so because it is now July and I have no finished artworks to show you yet.

I started a new Eggland Mandala painting in March but it has been put aside to dry for now. I look forward to returning to it and completing it soon, as well as starting new ones.

I’ve been doing a lot of research and study though. This has included writing down ideas for artworks (as notes) and sketching new artwork ideas on paper too. I will share these with you in future posts. I find this research and study process to be an important and satisfying one because I think good artworks take time and need a good idea/foundation to start with, which can then be developed and refined.

I’m not dwelling on this level of lull and unproductivity too much, although it does seem to be an ongoing theme. I like to see life as a spiritual journey and experience, full of artwork ideas and I am enjoying it and open to learning and exploring what is presented to me.

Life is unpredictable and sometimes out of our control. Things happen for a reason and sometimes, it is good to go with the flow.

I plan to update this blog at least once per week but anything is possible. In order to not miss a post, please subscribe to the blog to receive new posts sent to your email. Also, please sign up for my Newsletter to receive news updates about my art practice including future exhibitions. And, feel free to leave a comment for blog posts. I do enjoy reading them.

That’s it for now. First blog post done and dusted. Thank you for taking the time to read it. Have a wonderful day.
