I promised I’d begin my “new” blog by telling you about the event I participated in this November. (photos at the end)
About 2 months before, an art community that I subscribe to suddenly decided we should all do this together, set the date for mid-November, wham. Er, um, whut? I’m not ready for that. I don’t have the space to do that. I live out in the middle of nowhere and it will be dark and cold. I don’t have enough paintings to show. They’re not good enough. I don’t want strangers in my house! I also don’t want nosy neighbours from the next village in my house. There’s not enough time! I had other plans, I just want to finish my paint project.
But in the end I enlisted anyway. Just to see what would happen, to my stress levels, my self confidence, my work speed, my sense of privacy. What happens if you don’t wait until you’re perfect and ready? If chances arrive and you don’t take them, will they come back?
I’ve said it before, so it may sound hollow by now: I really want to get back to blogging again. Yes, the exact same spot where we left things at the beginning of the year. (I went back to look at my post from Nov. 2020 as well, but today I’ll be addressing things backwards)
I’ve been looking sideways at one of my paintings, trying to figure out how to finish it.
And now I’ve simply decided that it’s finished and that I need to move on to new things to get back in the flow of it all. The light is coming back, I’ll be able to take better pictures of my work, when I do the work, but also there’s all the other outdoors things to tend to, it’s not the time to fiddle.
Yet another planned post has been postponed today in favour of “smaller” stuff. And so it goes, lah dee dah.
I found a couple of skeins of undyed sock yarn that called to get stash busted, so first step was having fun with colour obviously. I decided to get a little ahead of times and do autumn colours – 4 skeins isn’t a lot to work with, considering I have about a million colour combinations waiting in my head, and then it turned out I had run out of 4 essential colours, so that’s a completely different kind of planning game.

November 17th 2021 - I'll be changing my prices to DKKr. to cater to the local market and prevent typos on my part.
Please use a currency converter, since they do a better job than I at keeping up with market fluctuations. Luk
