At the moment I'm planning new artworks for canvas, ribbon embroidery and porcelain...too many ideas and not enough time.
New canvas work is for my exhibition in St Petersburg next year...I have finished assembling photos for inspiration...next to find music, then re-read some of Gogol's stories, find the poetry I wrote while I was in Russia in October (I'm still looking for it)...and then a day or two of isolation to plan and think!!
Porcelain...I have some dusted flowers to create, and I wanted to start planning my orb spiders paintings next. I may do some porcelain for my exhibition in St Petersburg...not sure yet. I still have some porcelain shoes which I want to incporate with ribbon embroidery and tie in the rococco them I'm inspired by at the moment.
Ribbon embroidery I have the ideas organised...and today I had this video shared with me of one of my favourite female artists, Marie Louise Élisabeth Vigée Lebrun famous artist of her time, who also painted Marie Antoinette...I'm going to hunt down her biography or something if I can, I'd love to know more about her. But I want to capture the feel of her works in my next series of large ribbon embroideries. I was also inspired by the gorgeous rococco artwork and rooms when I visited Catherine's Palace...so we shall see what comes of this all.
Among a heap of other ideas I'm putting on hold, I have these to get through first.
I'm also organising my projects for my Masterclasses for next year...I wonder if I can function on 5.5 hours sleep??
