I haven’t blogged for a quite awhile because I have been struggling a little with some form of creative block. I feel like I have alot of things swarming in my head but nothing is falling out of me creatively or productively. I have a lot of old memories rearing their ugly head and I want to grab hold of them and own them and turn them into something beautiful and empowering instead of allowing them to be painful and dis-empowering but I just haven’t quite figured out how to do that yet. So as it is I find myself with many torn up pieces of paper and many half started drawings and not much to show for my time.
Something I have done though in this period is visited my tribal family in Cornwall and whilst I was there I did manage to finish an oil pastel drawing I had started previously. The drawing began as an automatic doodle and seemed to morph into some kind of alien being.
My drawing caught the attention of the little people and they wanted to create their own oil pastel drawings so I have included pictures of their art along with my own because their self-expression is just as important as mine. :-)
