Art History

Stevie-Wonder-paintingSometimes life just bobs along and sometimes you are aware that you are in a period of change. That’s where I seem to be at the moment as there seem to be quite a lot of “big things” happening.

I am getting ready to move home and started the tidy up and put things in boxes excercise. I came across two old portfolios and just couldn’t resist having a rummage through one of them.

I have to say, it was quite a pleasant experience to travel down an artistic memory lane. There were old pieces of art from college and from school days. I thought I would share this “Stevie Wonder” which I painted in oil pastel when I was 14 years old. I have to say that I am quite impressed by it! I remember doing it at the time. I know that I drew it in pencil first but I also know that I didn’t measure it – just went for it without a care in the world as you do at that age. I am a perfectionist for measuring things these days but the freedom to fail seems quite appealing.

Tomorrow in the studio could be interesting….
