Four long days at the beautiful, spacious and steeped in history, Porthmeor Studios, St Ives. So short a time but it felt like a luxury, a holiday away from the norm, I didn't have to rush off each day to carry on with all my other duties, I stayed, immersed myself and made the most of the space.
It was an opportunity to work in an empty environment, away from the chaos and clutter of my studio back in Marazion. An opportunity to see works in progress clearly and develop ideas and experiment with no set agenda or outcome.
Most of the pieces I'd been working on were destroyed at the end, mainly due to the ephemeral fragile nature of them. It felt good, it always does.

Ah thanks Marie-claire, all works in progress that got trashed at the end of the week! Your paper work the week before inspired me - I'd been looking at ways to add depth to my canvases before adding the roots n branches spilling down onto the floor. The paper is what I needed (which I covered in plastic) for that particular experiment. Hope you're well. x

I always love a peek into fellow artists studios, seeing work in progress and ideas being played with.
