Phew, what a day …. been learning quite a lot about twitter, and realising how difficult my hand is making life…. ah well
– also just done an ’empathy drawing’ I remember how Trevor Felcey ( RCA) – a fabulous painter friend who is worth looking up – talked about. When (at the age of 35 ish I went back to college at the Byam Shaw, to own up to being a painter after all, or not… after having three babies , being a Common woman from Greenham and employed as Dorset Peace Worker by the Quakers…being arrested etc ) where was I? Oh yes, on the top of a Clapham omnibus I remember Trevor talking about empathy drawings and I told him about leaving my first husband, and running away with the painting tutor…. oy vey…. a long time ago.
so … Empathy drawings… well one reason I paint I guess is because some things don’t fit into words….. talking to Elizabeth Speller…. are you listening?
