April is always a month with great contrasts. These are often reflected in changes in the light within the landscape, as spring develops and the days get longer. When this contrast in nature reaches a kind of peak – with rain and sun, bright light and dark skies – something magical emerges in the form of the multi-coloured rainbow. I never cease to be excited when they appear, wondering at their luminosity and beauty, in the sky and through a prism onto the wall.
April has seen a hive of contrasting activities inside Studio Hundy as well. The Chinese ink picture came back from the framers, completing the series of artworks for the exhibition.
So I have turned to those final preparations – the labels for the 17 artworks, listing, pricing, sorting out insurance and making a comments book. Oh yes, and with a bit of wishful thinking in mind, getting hold of some red dots!!
There has also been time to be “the Artist outside Studio Hundy” enjoying the unfolding of nature in the garden. Watching fritillary nodding their heads in the breeze, celebrating the pulsatilla that has not flowered for 2 years coming into blossom and listening to the song of the wren that has taken up residence in one of last year’s swallow nest.
Only a few days now before we pack the car and head up to Aberdeen to hang the pictures in the Foyer gallery in Newton Dee – Exhibition in 2017
