Made It

Today is a double celebration! I have made it to the end of my month of making, and this is my 50th blog post. I’m amazed that I have had enough material to get this far, even if some of it is a little bit ropey. It has definitely encouraged me to create more than I ever have before, and I feel really positive about that.

The same can be said of the month of making project. In review, I feel like pushing myself, particularly with the painting, has genuinely developed me a tiny bit, or at least opened up my understanding of how much more I have to do to actually improve. I know much better now how much I don’t know.

Thursday 29 March 

The beginnings of a woman, intended to represent Cassandra, who could see the future, but was doomed never to be believed. Sometimes, with the insane political catastrophes that are lurching the world into ever greater uncertainty, it feels like there are a lot of Cassandras around at the moment.

Friday 30 March 

She’s becoming a bit of a familiar face.

30 - Lady next attempt


Saturday 31 March 

And to conclude, two nudes.
