Home Is Where The Art Is

If you are an artist, a lover of art then I hope that I can inspire you to do what you love.

Let There Be Light!

I managed it... I think that I have successfully ordered my lights. You may be reading this and thinking, 'what's the big deal?'. It is a mine field! Buying from trade websites is not the most straightforward thing I have ever done. There are product codes, pdf catalogues and price lists. VAT added and not added. I might of mentioned it once or twice before, but maths is not my thing. I get metres mixed up with feet and inches with centimetres. My friend Tara says that I should have taken the maths lessons that she used to teach my students. I think I'm an artist and all that calculating goes against the creative grain.
I've been to the gallery and checked on my dehumidifier, it had managed to extract 7 litres of water from the atmosphere in 2 days. I knew it was damp in there.
I have got the mock ups of my sign designs back and I have to say that I'm not convinced. I think they look lazy and not quite as classy I would like them to. I think I might have to try somewhere else.
I am half tempted to paint my own after all I am an artist and the logo is my own writing.
Cast the net a bit wider than Swanage, as it seems to be cheaper and better out of town. I have to say that I think that this is a shame as I would love to support any local businesses. Especially as I am about to become one. But it's also the fact that I am going to be running a business which is making me be more choosy.
I hope to meet up with some artists tomorrow and get their work this is the exciting bit.


  1. Your friend Tara thinks that Art and Maths walk hand in hand in life and without one, the other cannot exist.

  2. Mmmm....I'm not convinced! I need to sharpen my maths skills end of story. Can you help? Lol :)
