Getting Ready for Patchings Art Festival

Hey ho, hey ho, it’s off to Patchings I go … or will be under three weeks. Right now I’m busy making new palette brooches and necklaces. And, yes, I am indeed using an abandoned 30x30cm tree painting as a working-surface-tray for these; it’s so I can easily move them to a safe spot for drying. Any stray bits of paint on the canvas will just add to the under-colour of some future painting.

If you’re coming to the festival and are hoping I bring something specific along, let me know what it is! I’ve had a request for covered sketchbooks, and that’s next on my to-make list.
