Creativity, Comfort And Curveballs

23 Feb

Donna and Kate

And here’s the final drawing I did at the creative salon organised by the artist Fern Smith, a recipient of a Creative Wales Award .  It was the first of “Seven Sundays in Spring: All The Women I’ve Ever Met“ , hosted by the glass artist Chris Bird-Jones. 

I found it not only creative but also very comforting. Life has been throwing some nasty curveballs lately and I was very grateful for the chance to spend a day with such creative and supportive women. I knew about half of the women already and the rest I had never met. It was lovely being with an intergenerational group, from women in their 60s (maybe 70s?) all the way down to a baby girl of seven months. I drew into an A4 hardbacked sketchbook that had been prepared with ripped brown paper stuck in with Pritt Stick, drawing with white, black and sanguine conté crayon and Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens, sizes S and M.

If you want to find out more about “Seven Sundays In Spring“, here’s Fern’s blog about it.

    Rosie, this is one of my favorite drawings that you have done. I like the overlapping color. There is a collage quality to this piece. I do like to be in the company of other woman making art, a very soothing experience.

      Thanks Sharon. I usually work entirety alone but this year so far is my year of working with women

    The comfort and enjoyment really comes across in this beautiful drawing Rosie, such a sense of calm and relaxation, but strength too, it’s fab 😊

      Thank you, Phil. It was the end of the day and we had gathered back into the circle and it was such a lovely atmosphere ☺
