As you can see the sun came out - the light was marvellous and the wind of yesterday subsided - a lovely day to stretch my legs (and the rest of me!) Yorkshire really does have some great countryside
I sat eating my lunch, looked up and a line of 'striped' cattle were plodding across the field, what a sight! Apparently they are an old breed from Southern Scotland called Galoways - I have never seen a striped cow before - the little one in the middle was very engaging! And they made me laugh!!
I deleted a lot of photos when I got home as I have resolved to keep only the ones that matter and that doesn't mean they have to be a 'good' photo but it has to mean something to me - like these two - not very good photos but I like the images
I wondered, when I said I was going to take a day off yesterday, whether you ever really do this as an artist? Whatever I'm working on is my constant companion - yes I am relaxed about it and not doing work as such but I am aware of little seeds in the mind waiting for my body to relax and give them nourishment so they push the work up into the world - isn't that what is magic about being an artist! (and sometimes exhausting!) I take the camera on my walks too so always have my eye open for an image of course!!
I was also reflecting on what Jeanne said about not understanding the instructions for the bookwork (the last post comments) - I am not sure I understand whats happening fully myself - for now I am interpreting as best I can the instructions sent me from another participant. Questions are beginning to arise from other participants like 'who owns the work that is created'? I think the exhibition is going to raise lots of interesting comments and questions!
