Exciting! This is my first blog ever. I've been an artist and educator since completing my Masters at Elam, in Auckland, in 1992. I have flinged and pushed a lot of coloured mud around, ranted and written about painting quite a lot since then and that's all going to come together HERE in this blog.
Firstly, painting, any relevance at all in this world? Resoundingly, YES! More about that to come.
The word...painting. You will notice there is 'pain' in painting, but it also sounds like ..."panting" in a good way. What's it all about? I shall endeavour to enlighten or un-enlighten you all in this blog.
The artists heaven, the studio, some images;
Oh, next heaven...I am the painting and my clothes are the best painting I do:
That's enough for a virgin post, more to come. Probably rant most weeks (or days if I can't hold back!)
I would love to engage in conversations.

Kia ora back at you Lorraine! Cool first blog. I identify with you on the workbook (& groaning bookshelves) front. Yes it's a sci fi feeling when you open a page, & sketch/photo/writing/copy of an article - still speaks to you/has relevance. We know we've added skills & knowledge to the continuum, but there's a sense of standing outside the time portal, isn't there. Perhaps, because we are expressing ourselves so truthfully/making art that visualises our intuitive & thought out responses to life?

Hi Lorraine, It is so nice to have a window on someone else's process, you've inspired me to tidy up my studio so I can take some photos, don't hold your breath though, might take a while.
