These last couple of days have been busy… Amongst swimming, a pub dinner with friends, a chiropractor appointment, finishing to write a rather lenghty blog post to keep my draft folder happy, dog walking and a good-bye meet up with some of boy’s friends who are moving back to New Zealand, I managed to needle-felt a new owl, get quite a bit of knitting done on a sock and today I made this painting:
I called it The Shapeshifter.
I wanted to draw it with pencils at first, but half-way through I just couldn’t resist reaching out for my watercolours and brushes.
There is something I find incredibly satisfying about playing with water and colours…
The new owl is called Petunia:
I’m toying with the idea of putting some needle-felted animals for sale on Etsy in 2016… I’m not sure yet…
and the sock hasn’t been named yet…
It’s funny that somehow, I managed to do a bit of knitting, a painting and a needle-felted owl in just a couple of days, just before the very end of this year. I usually go through phases.
As I reflect on my stats, like my other fellow bloggers on WordPress, I can’t help but thinking that I still don’t really know what this blog is about.
It’s like water. It takes the shape of my life, somehow.
I’m a bit of a shapeshifter myself, I suppose… As I choose different mediums, like wool or watercolour or photography or words… And I love them all.
“Jack-of-all-trades is master of none” I have heard. Possibly… But I hope I am not too boring, at least!
Thank you very much to all of you who have read me this year and took the time to leave comments under my posts. It means the world to me. You made me feel worthy and like I was a part of a little online community! So thank you deeply to every single one of you for coming here.
I wish you all the best for 2016 – May your life be full of creativity, love, laughter, cats, warmth, nice walks in nature and full of discoveries, new finds, new ideas, new places, new sounds, new views and new friends!
Happy New Year!
