    Ramadan

    By in blog on

    This is the first day of Ramadan, and busiest time of the year for me. My design clients are normally closed for a few weeks. This helps the owners focus on other parts of the business, including marketing.

    I try and reflect on the past year and start to implement any positive changes for the following years.

    Ramadan started last night at sunset, which was followed by the night prayer (About 1 Hour).

    The fast began at Dawn, which means no food or liquid consumption during daylight. I am looking forward to losing a few pounds through Ketosis.

    Here is my contribution to social media Ramadan message.

    New project

    By in blog on

    I received an enquiry to  host and manage 20 x 3hr workshops.

    The focus and theme will look at cultural segregation and racism in St Matthew’s.

    I will be getting in contact with the project coordinator over the weekend to formalise the event.

    Further information to follow.

    Influence #8

    Bob Ross
    Robert Norman Ross was an American painter, art instructor, and television host. He was the creator and host of The Joy of Painting, an instructional television program that aired from 1983 to 1994 on PBS in the United States, and also aired in Canada, Latin America, and Europe. Wiki

    Thoughts
    His finished pieces were not very appealing to me, but the process of how he would get there was mesmeric. I watched hours and hours of Bob’s programme when I was younger. I love his quote ‘Beauty is Everywhere’. There are loads of videos on You Tube. No need for me to post on here.

    This documentary popped up on You Tube recommended. There are some real nuggets of information within.

    Update

    By in blog on

    Not much in the way of updates this week. I have been working on another application to St Matthews, for Big Local funding. The idea is to try something different, and get out of my comfort zone.

    My other projects are taking my focus away from fine art. No problem, if it’s meant to be then new art projects will fall into place.
