This week I was relieved to find another sponsor for my exhibition at the The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
I have to say thank you to Dylon who will sponsor me with dyes for my exhibition.
I say relief, because as some of you may know, my husband has been out of work and the cost of materials and framing has been a concern.
Luckily my husband has picked up some contract work recently, so I'm hoping we will be able to cover the framing costs or perhaps get some form of sponsorship or grant to go towards it.
I also received a large box of amazingly colourful threads from Madeira.
How excited was I and compelled to use them in my art straight away...thread heaven!
Today I have been working on a brooch for a friend, it's for a relative who moved to America and this was a tree from the view of their former home.
Earlier, despite the grey clouds, I took the dog and camera for a walk.
It's elating to find beautiful views so close to home that you have never discovered before and I am eager to translate these into paintings and then stitch.
I hope you have a nice week ahead, we break up for the summer...yipee!
