We popped along to the Edinurgh Art Fair last Sunday, and it was rather delightful. I love wandering around a room filled with so much talent, it’s more than a little inspiring… so, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourites from the show…
Rachel Ann Stevenson
Juli Jolly… I might be a little bit in love with her work.
Georgie Woolridge a zentangle goddess. Love.
A few Saturdays ago we popped along to the fabulous Process Studios for their 90-minute drop-in Titanium Colouring workshop… and it was awesome fun!!
It was just like painting… with with electricity!! all the fun!
I should have taken some photos of the process… but I was messing about too much to remember! so, enjoy some images of the finished samples and my lovely “Starry Night” cuff.
Thanks Elaine, Grant, and Sara for letting me drag ya’ll along :)
And thank you Karen Donovan for putting up with us in your wonderful class :)
The other day we popped along to visit The Silversmith’s Art exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland… it was stunning!
“This ground-breaking exhibition celebrates the exceptional creativity and skill which make Britain a world leader in modern silver. The Silversmith’s Art features 150 masterpieces made by 66 acclaimed silversmiths between 2000 and 2015.”
I would thoroughly recommend a visit if you’re in the area, jeweller/silversmith or not it is a worthwhile nosey.
The design and craftsmanship is exceptional… and just seeing so much silver in one place is highly gratifying.
This next one was by far my favourite. The work that must have gone into this piece is immense. I am truly captivated, and in awe.
I always leave glorious exhibitions feeling ecstatically inspired… and woefully dejected. Will my work ever be that amazing?
One can only wish… and work really hard!
It didn’t quite win, but this is my submission for the 2016 Edinburgh Comic Con poster competition.
I was a little sad it didn’t get in… but that was quickly brushed away when I realised I now have a sexy geeky piece of artwork to flaunt!!
What do you think of it? Who’s your favourite?
There is something deeply comical about vampires brushing their teeth…
So here is Adam and Eve, i.e. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton from Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive (which is, by the way, my favourite film ever. If you haven’t seen it, go now, go on shoo, go watch it!) enjoying a personal care moment….
I like to think that Eve would be all in to it, with Adam standing moodily by her side expressing a quiet disdain for this inane zombie activity.
Happy Halloween everybody!
Much spooky love.
