paper boats

It's been a strange day - rather unfocused, not sure what to get on with in the studio - seem to have lots on my mind  - anyway I've made another 10 paper boats... I intend making 50 to represent the age of the painting 'man in a boat' - I am using old envelopes - containers/vessels of news and all the other stuff of life over the years - giving the old form a new life, and like an archaeologist's trowel, excavating and archiving the original meanings for my own use and recollection.  



Then I put some work into the collaboration by starting another blog HERE and getting ready for the book which will be published from the blog. Finally before supper I went into the garden to do some more planting! I want to be outdoors in the garden more than in the studio these days but I really must balance the time in order to get everything ready for the degree show in June.
