Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!
Hope you are having a great day that turns into a great week! Last week I saw Deb’s sheep post and I mentioned to Kathy that it reminded me of Cow Parade from some years ago. I visited one of the installations in Australia and even bought some souvenirs – a Moonet (Monet) and a Van Cogh (Van Gogh) – yes cheesy but true since the one on the left is inspired by Monet and the one on the right by Van Gogh haha.
Have you been watching the free classes on the Virtual Art Summit this month? I mention it because it has another couple of weeks left to run on the 30 days free access so if you wanted to watch some classes here’s the link. I really love the interviews with the artists, that’s my favourite part of all of these type of things, same with Sketchbook Revival which I still haven’t completed lol. Things have been so busy at home but why not watch more free classes that I don’t have time to do! I am also supposed to be in Wanderlust again this year but haven’t done a single lesson due to lack of time – I don’t even have time to read the weekly emails never mind watch the lessons, never mind do the actual work…… glad there’s not an expiry date on those! But anyway, more free art classes to watch if you have the time, so check out the VAS link above.
today’s art . . .
Today’s art, is a catch-up for the 100 day project, something that is supposed to be done daily and shared online/Instagram daily, but since I have no time, I have been doing my own thing and not sharing it anywhere. I’ve been taking my time, and doing it when I had a spare minute and trying not to feel pressured and just trying to enjoy the process of making. It was either that or not do it at all this year. So here’s a look at some of them…
This is days 1-32 only because 32 ATCs just happened to fit on this wooden board. We are at day 90 or so and I do have all 90 done so I will show the next batch in my next post, or all 100 of them on the 100th day, not sure yet. Each one has a different Harris Tweed background, then some stitching, some added fibres and then words from a Robert Louis Stevenson poem. Each one of them is attached to a kraft cardboard base courtesy of Amazon packaging, which I showed last week – 4 x amazon boxes = 110 ATCs.

I added a video on instagram which you can watch above without logging in if you want to, it’s very short. In it you will see all 100 Harris Tweed backgrounds at the start of the project. As I was working on them, I kept them all in this little box which was just the right size to hold all 100 together.

…Earl Grey tea in my glass teapot, sourdough starter pancakes and fruit. I was topping up my sourdough starter last week and so we had pancakes nearly every morning with the discard. My sourdough loaves below could be any size and look a little like bread rolls but you can see the bag of flour behind them to give you an idea of scale.
My sourdough bread before…
and after baking! I used a blend of wholemeal, white and malted flour which is my favourite combination and makes very tasty bread.
Happy T Day! As always, thanks for reading, and have a great week!
