There is so much to tell you!! I think this shall be a long post...
Me and my dearest David visited the peak district. It was beautiful, so stunning. We drove through the prettiest sights and visited a garden centre and a little market and had a lovely warming pub lunch. We will definitely be visiting again, it was wonderful!!
Little things that have been making me happy are visits home to see a photo of me and David and Poppy on mother and fathers fire place next to the peter rabbit ornament, playing games with my little brother, driving back to uni with my love in our new car, buying pretty owl necklaces, eating chocolate caramel bunnies, receiving a lovely post from charlotte, and putting pictures of my family on the wall with little pegs and ribbons.
and I have been working lots in the studios, mainly with little railway figures in jars. But also trying to find inspiration from some lovely objects found ion charity shops and antique fairs recently. A childs microscope from the 50's in the box it was first posted in, a prayer book from 1927 given from a girl to her father with a little message inside, and a handmade recipe book with handwritten messages.
did you all have a lovely valentines day?? my David and I couldn't afford much this year, so I cooked steak and chips and baked a chocolate cake and we watched films together. quiet and cosy!
ooh and i also have an exciting project coming up! I am going to work at a primary school and give them a few art lessons! which will be lovely, although im a little bit nervous.
thank you again for the wonderful comments you leave me, it means a lot. I have been wondering whether o not I should show some of the artwork I finished recently, and I have decided I will, although I am still a little insecure about my work and get shy showing people. But I have to get better. so here is a few pictures of my most recent work. Railway figures in jars. Inside each jar is a little scene based on my memories with my grandparents. I used railway figures because my grandfather was a model railway enthusiast and the jars represent my wish to preserve the memories I have with my grandparents. I hope you dont think its too silly!!
