</aThe above is a wishing well that my girlfriend and I made for our friends wedding last Saturday. It's purpose was for the guests to put their gift envelopes into. It's clearly not my usual kind of thing but I think it fulfilled the brief.
More my kind of thing was this piece of ‘ruin porn’ in the form of a great big rusted metal door at the back of the wedding church car park.
It’s a bit strange at this end of the college year. Most of my projects are done and I have the safe knowledge of my place at art college in September. So today I am going to make a box to contain the sketchbook that is a bit out of control and cannot be closed. I will have to dismantle the book to make it loose leaf to fit in the box. I will of course be making the box from found wood and materials. More to come.
Not long back from a wee break in Aviemore that took in a fab friends wedding. Cute church, humanist ceremony, homemade style village hall party afterwards – it was great.
Aside from a wee biro doodle on card I did no art, which is fair enough. I did the above sketchy seascape with the paint left over in my palette last week. Now that the interview is behind me I’m looking forward to completing my college course with less pressure and actually enjoying the work. Ideas for the song series keep coming so I hope I have enough time to realise them.
