2020 – the year that changed the world.
The year started for me, like for so many others, with a full diary. 2019 had been incredibly successful with the Studio Door Art Workshops. The plan for 2020 had been to adjust those to include some Plein Air field trips. The plan had also included visits to other towns and art groups to teach.
Covid19 has put paid to all of that.
Instead, we have all become self-isolationists. As I write this it’s still a novelty, as we watch and wait. Soon, I imagine, this will pall and we’ll need some input. In the next week or two, I’ll put together some sort of on-line teaching. It will probably include some free elements delivered via facebook or similar, and will also include some subscribed classes. There’ll also be a chance for people to get some one-on-one communications about their paintings.
Just at present I think we’ve all got other worries. Let’s settle down a bit and then start to fill this time with creativity. Don’t forget that if you’d like advice about things you’re working on now, or ideas for something to do, contact me and we’ll get something together sooner. Or have a read through some of my blogs – there’s ideas there too. Until then, use this time to let the ideas flow past, and if something catches your eye, try it.
Yours, in creativity
