Pausing for Bit

Artist Marion Boddy-EvansPaint brushes lie idle;
Paint tubes unopened.

The varnish is dry;
Strings have been strung.
Titles given;

Paintings hung.

The last decision:
which shirt
will distract the most from
the trousers
that have the least paint on them.

Today my Interlude exhibition opens at Skyeworks, the end of a chapter (the making thereof)  and beginning of a new (the response). I’m excited and trepidatious, energised and exhausted, keen to be painting again yet also to reflect on what I’ve just done.

I will still get photos of the paintings onto my website, I will still add the new cards and prints to my webshop, I will still write blogs with photos taken while working on my Interlude paintings, but come this evening, after the opening, I’m going to press pause for a few days. Thank you for your enthusiasm, support and help in making Interlude happen.

  1. Oh those daisies!!! They work so well I bet they move beautifully as they hang in little rows. You deserve and need a rest. I know I did! Your work looks absolutely gorgeous and I am sure those red stickers will flutter like butterflies. Congratulations!!!! 🙂
