​​​Lately most of my time has been allocated to drawing, painting and baking! whilst also working in the film industry from time to time. Drawing is a daily practice, this has been the case for as long as I can remember. These are spontaneous drawings mainly as an exercise to free up creative blocks and for conceptualizing ideas. I have also been exploring the watercolour medium here and there and I guess you could say appreciating the change in process. Some of the techniques I employ in my acrylic painting do so happen to cross over nicely, such as layering and the use of drawing as a foundation. However I do find watercolour to be more of a one shot deal, or at least I use less paint and subsequently less layers of paint. What I have noticed with watercolour is the crystal like shimmer of some of the pigments and the unpredictability has made for some interesting surprises. With more experience I am developing my own painting techniques as I get accustom to the way watercolour goes down on the paper, and the look of the pigment on paper is giving me ideas. Recently I’ve been thinking about going back to my abstract roots. However as we all know plans change as life changes, so time will will tell. 

A poem from the poem zone

I wrote this the other day in bc, I was thinking about the darkness of the times, and conversations I have had with friends and family as well as reflecting on recent events. Regardless of what my position is in terms of politics, social issues and so on, it is evident that beneath the veneer people are going through some hard times. I do hope that this poem reaches out and makes a tiny little difference in your world. 
There’s only one of you

Take care of yourself

Stop punishing 

Stop blaming

Feeling sorry

Stop loathing 

Wake up

Tomorrow

And tell yourself 

I love you

Don’t waste time

It’s not too late

Be courageous 

Give a shit

Love

Forgive

And the let the sun shine in
