Im a total fail at blog updating these days, but what can ya do :)
You may of noticed a few changes. We have moved from VIC back to QLD in the last week or so, for me it was actually an easy decision in the end, family vs no family and having your family and friends around wins hands down each and every time. And so we semi packed up and headed home. House was placed on the market and we said goodbye to country living and hello to a capital city once more. I return to work for third term teaching at Caboolture East until end of year where i have then applied for a transfer into a school closer to the childrens hospital to coincide with Emilys start to school and having to have as many appointments as she can outside of school hours and with traffic and everything else to consider it made more sense for us to live and work closer to royal childrens in bris.
The week before we were coming home i had the decision to head back to uni and study a fine arts and visual culture degree. Am i scared, oh yeah, but i cant wait too So with that in mind i started art journalling to remember that which i had learnt previously and to just start creating again so its a habit for august when my course starts up again.
heres what i have so far. Ive seen many journals, and mine is very much a working document, one half i have put aside for experimenting, practise draws, ideas, anything and everything to do with whatever is happening on the pages in this book.
curtain university degree completely external for the next three years here i come, eek!!!
Took the kids to the surrealism exhibit at GoMA on tuesday and the next few pages are about that influence. The gallery is fantastic with its childrens activities and we will be back their frequently!!!!
so there you go. Today i have been playing with gel mediums and texture paste, will share over the next few weeks.
