The ideas-generating portion of my brain seems to have slipped into overdrive and is coming up with ideas almost faster than I can write them down. While I was completing yesterday's drawing (late in the evening whilst watching the footie on tv), thoughts on what I could do with it kept floating to the top of my mind: screenprints on cards/clothing/fabric, sculptures using boxes and wire as found objects, then their title(s) popped into my head. They're imps so each with have a name like IMPasto, IMPortant, IMPressed, IMPeril. Then I couldn't stop thinking about all the words starting with "imp-", on and on! I had to go fetch a pencil and visual diary to put beside the bed just in case I started awake in the middle of the night with an idea that would disappear with my snores if I didn't write it down :) (which has happened, and recently).
Not complaining, though - I have enough ideas to work on for a couple of lifetimes, and there are more coming.
I'm 48, female, just finished a two year course in Visual Arts, and am now back in the market for a job (boo!). I worked in the library field for the better part of three decades and two years ago took the plunge from a job that made me unhappy to go back to school. I've loved every moment of it and as soon as I have enough money to tide me over being a poverty stricken student I'm going back for more!
