Diary of A frustrated Artist

I am drawing and painting for my own pleasure, its been so long since I had the time to do it. I am a little rusty but practice makes perfect. It is my hope to get a collection together and have something to show, who knows some one may even ask me to paint for them?
I hope so cos the cupboard looks pretty bare, such is the life of an ex student. I passed by the way with a high-class 2/1 so i am rather happy. Today by way of a small celebration I am making a summer fruit pudding with fruit picked from my lovely friend Helen garden. I shall refrain from the obligatory cream however as I have waged war on my ample fat and this time its personal!!!! watch this space.

This is how to be a rock star

Whilst talking to my sister about my recent visit to the cinema, to see Rock of Ages, featuring Tom Cruise as some kind of rock star. I was keen to tell her than he may have looked the part but lacked credibility. The film was lame and reminiscent of that awful show Glee. I was quick to infrom her that, should she wish to see a more convincing performance of a rock star she should check out the Iggy based character played by Ewan McGregor, who I said quote ” he gets his willy out and wangs it about!” unbeknown to me, my teenage niece wasnt listening to her i pod as usual and had heard this exchange. imagine my surprise when I discover that she not only tweeted this quote, but because she had tagged Mr. Mc Gregor he had in fact read this and retweeted to his 74 thousand plus tweeters!!!!hahahaha he is a great man and truly great actor and a convincing rock star.

The fantastic Janice Joplin

Ok people I have not fallen off the radar, just had a long rest as I have now finished uni!!! yes hooray to that. Had me a few drinkies the last few weeks, which were long overdue, I am back in the saddle and ready to bring the steers home as it were. Painting like a demon and getting my mojo back. I shall be completely revamping this here blog and making it an altogether less boring place to visit. Who knows I may even put a few scatter cushions about the place .

So keep dropping by for the latest up dates of a frustrated artist, my trials and tribulations as I try to get by in the big bad world…..today however I am mostly eating chocolate and watching the Who on sky arts, cos that’s the way I roll, and because I have a mean arsed hangover. peace x

It is still hot and sunny…really I know it’s the U.K but I am honestly not making this up. Check the news, i am still a little stunned myself, don’t want to speak to soon though as I may jinx it. I love the sunshine, its makes everything look much nicer. Even Newport looks reasonable and that is a stretch believe me.
I was going to write about the 9 hours I spent at the hospital with my pregnant daughter yesterday. I was frazzled and cross when I got home. You know what though? I wont be grumpy today as the sun has helped me chill. Tomorrow i will be finishing my space for the exhibition and actually hanging my paintings. I must confess i am a little nervous, I have no back up ! what if they hate my work???
On a lighter note people I had a b.b.q with my family today in the garden in the sun, it was bliss and my boy Blue got a share of all the meats bones. I am posting his mug shot so you can see how beautiful he is.
