I’m missing my messy space, my painty, drippy, smeared space of colourful creative splurges. My head has spent the last few weeks full of white noise with no direction & no ability to concentrate or focus. I’ve been in full on summer holiday mode - red coat extraordinaire with added jazz hands - but as I can see the end in sight, things are beginning to stir again. The need to get moving & painting, colouring over the lines & exploring is scratching away inside me with long, unforgiving talons. So I’m settling in to the space to enjoy the next couple of weeks with the kids but also beginning to write notes & lists of what’s coming up in September. Anyone else find that actually September rather than January is their new year? Do you also find it’s a better month to actually move through stuff & begin, reassess, pick stuff up, shed things no longer working? Here’s to the final hurrah of the time bandit that is the summer holidays. The mooching, hanging out & giggling over silly stuff, being the ref, the cajoler, the cook, the nurse, the entertainments officer & general all round dogs body & here’s to beginning again. Hello new year.

Stalin. P.J.'s "Story of Bark" is all about texture. Bringing alive the minutiae of the natural world around us, the artwork seeks to reacquaint us with the stunning beauty of the everyday.
group show “Sanitorium of Childhood” opens today at A4 museum in Chengdu 8.18-10.13 ☁️☁️☁️ this little built hut thing is call “Happy Island” and I made it for myself and others to basically hide in and do a bit of deep breathing slash nothing hehe
For art lovers who are fans of wandering through the wilderness, these two WPA prints are a perfect pairing.

All of this ash falling from smoke filled skies has me seriously dreaming of winter! I LOVE winter - I blame all the sparkly snow. ❄️ This pic is from almost 5 years ago - a snowshoe adventure we took through lightening lakes. What a magical place both in the summer & winter. .
