When the Title Comes First
There's a Suffolk Open Studios group show coming up soon and I had to submit my titles weeks ago. I am always determined to show new work, even if what I showed before only got one outing. This time I chose the titles for the work based on some things I had done recently. You know the thing when you like something right after you do it or you think it will grow on you, only to find it just doesn't really work. That was what happend with my titles for SOS this time. I'm just not sure about the pieces I made associated with the titles so this week's job was to see what I could do with the titles. The titles I was working to were: Jam and Book at Breakfast, and Daffs and Lemons. The previous blog post has something I arranged to fit the title Daffs and Lemons and today it was the other title's turn.
I'm an artist-educator who uses imagery in all that I do, from painting, drawing, print-making and mail art to reflective journals around action research in schools. I believe in creating learning environments that are democratic, and collaborative where we are honest, open and caring.
