The annual Open Studio is here again – but it’s very, very quiet.
It’s nice to have the house tidy, but I’m wondering whether it’s due to the drop in the oil price (folk with less disposable income so not prepared to drive as far), inadequate marketing (my fault – too busy keeping financial head above water), or maybe people are tired of the whole thing.. well, it’s only the first Sunday.
This does give me some time to get on with making some more wee birds when I should be clearing up the workshop. I fancy a bone white installation coming on – flowers or birds.. possibly one of each. They take considerably greater effort than the round volumes, so I may be making a rod for my own back.
Anyway, this one looks like quite a secretive soul. waiting to give up his purpose. And for some company.
