Merry Christmas

   I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Here is a little angel that I drew for email Christmas cards, maybe I'll get a printer next year and send them by post. 

Our Christmas tree! I was determined to make one for our flat, and here it is! It stands about a foot and a half, made of cardboard and paper. The green stuff is hand made paper I bought and also brown paper painted green with acrylic. The stars are paper too! Yellow on one side and a map of Great Britain on the other. This tree is around 80% recycled material! 

Jesse added an ornament: my name tag from Thanksgiving!

    As you can see, there is not one snow flake in all of Liverpool. This is my window sill, a sad winter sight for us New Englanders! These past few days have been drizzly, windy, and warm enough to go without a coat. I hear that snow does fall here, rarely. The closest I have witnessed is hale, which looked like snow at first, but just bounced on the ground and melted! As you can tell, I miss New England and wish we could be there for the holidays. Maybe next year!

tall tree

This is a new little painting. I made it for the Christmas Presence exhibition at the Bridewell and I'm really happy with how it came out! There is a frame for it, which separates the three sections. They fit together correctly when it's framed, but I like the disjointed way this looks. The middle is my favorite part.

Panic and such

Well our exhibition is up at Wolstenholme Projects and I am quite happy with how it turned out. The private view was lots of fun and I want to thank everyone for coming! Hannah is doing a week long residency at the Bluecoat this week called "eight days a week" so check it out if you can. Also the Bridewell Christmas market is this Saturday, I am helping out with it (as a part of my internship duty) and will also have a table there with handmade cards, books, and bookmarks. There will be an exhibition sale as well, so check it out! Get in the holiday spirit with some mulled wine and caroling. I can't wait, really.
