1st of October – my first painting in 5 months

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

Last year I was very involved in the CED challenge. This year my nearly daily posts have turned into one monthly post. And my creative work in regards to the finer arts and crafts have come to a virtual standstill. I haven’t blogged much either. But now that the nights are getting longer and daylight hours are reducing fast plus the weather taking even nastier turns so that I find myself indoors a lot more, I feel I’m about to get back to my studio and more creative work. And I’m looking forward to it. I started to read and listen to a good few books on creativity and creative writing which are a nice little warm up for November, the NaNoWriMo month is starting to appear on my horizon.

Today I picked up a paint brush again, I think it’s the first time in four months. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a long while, not just to get back to painting but to paint something like this. It’s a bit banksy inspired and also work-on from the mono chrome water colours I did earlier over the last year. It’s a start, and the colour is seasonal, coincidentally, but the earthy reddish brown does go with this months CED theme of autumn.
