Delightful Distractions

As I slog through the “middle part” (= many, many, many hours at the sewing machine) of my current work with my self imposed deadline fast approaching, procrastination and distractions are extremely tempting. One delightful distraction last weekend was the inaugural exhibition of The December Gallery. Jan Mullen and Annie Shelley present a stunning body of work, Annie’s beautiful tonal drawings, perfectly complement Jan’s work. I’ve been following Jan’s blog on the development of these series’ of works she has on show and I admire them even more knowing the thinking and work behind them.
 My son Callum participated in the Disabled Surfers Association program at Leighton beach on Saturday morning… I need to mention here my great respect for volunteers. The Disabled Surfers Association is a very well run program with loads of volunteers of all ages giving people with disabilities a wonderful opportunity for a safe and successful surfing experience. Callum loves it and looking at the photos so does everyone else.This gave me the chance to see the Fremantle Art Centre Christmas Bazaar.
My afternoon continued with visits to Midland Junction Arts Centre to see Eco Echo by Fibrant group and the Felt West pop up shop.
My work has not progressed as far as I had planned this weekend. There are 100s more of these required before I can proceed to the next step, but my love of why and what I do has been restored.
