I am part of a lost generation...

I learnt how to make coleslaw the other day

I am part of a lost generation. I am lost. My friends are lost. What are we to do in this time? My dream job.....a full time artist....or work in a gallery....basically to be surrounded by art, circulating daily round my head. But, i am poor. I want to make big beautiful paintings, but i dont want to ruin my flat (my boyfriend will tell me off, i have only just got him to stop talking about the wax that i dripped all over the carpet) and my land lord will charge me!!! i dont know the right people in the right places. NoW!!!! I am not woe is just a little bit lost. And always have been. I made a big mistake at uni and didn't go in search for work experience through uni....i partied. and partied. and partied. I am a bit of a divy. But, this is something i am faced with more and more. I hope my beautiful wonderful friends don't mind me speaking of them, but we are a sort of a lost generation....Have and are we working hard enough to make our dreams come true? NO! we get drunk. And wake up and think, im lost. I want to document bits and bobs that I feel are magic in my eyes.

Mini canvases of icons with little gems

Also some more little canvases......
So I am have started a painting of lovely Lesley. Its my first non human painting and I dont really know how I feel about it but I wanted to thank Lesley for hanging out with me. I feel a bit mental actually writing this but I think Iv got a fever and at the moment its making sense to me. Its not quite finished.

Its been a while...

Ohhhh it has been a while since making a note of nonsense on my blog. Since moving into my higgledipiggledy flat it has taking me a while to settle into beautiful Brighton life! I love Brighton. Officially. And what I love most are the seagulls!!!!! However, I haven't been pooed on yet so things may change if I do. I have one particular, special seagull that I have fallen in love with and her name is Lesley. She is wonderful! and i know its her as she has a limp. Yes, I have been a bit side tracked away from making art over the past months for lots of reasons but no longer!!!! I am starting again.  With lesley!
