Hello 2018 !!!

Welcome one and all to my 2018 blog !

 

Looking very tidy!! Newly painted studio

Bit of a late start to the year, apologies, but I have been busy decorating my new extended studio space (mine till October this year, woo hoo !), as well as being  knee deep in ‘post- it’ notes, planning for what is shaping up to be an extremely exciting year ahead :O) 

Aim of my blog:           To be fun, interesting & informative

The masterplan is to send you snippets of what Im up to,  maybe some short videos of me painting (oh yes its all about me :O)!!!!) some of my painting techniques, share with you  exciting trips or just general ‘arty farty’ stuff I think you might be interested in, or inspired by.

I really encourage you to drop me a line anytime, and I mean anytime, with your thoughts and comments on my ramblings or if you’d like me to cover any particular topics just let me know. Please drop a line to studio@sallycoulden.art

Much loved brushes

So briefly,  ideas for my art career is bursting at the seams! Its great to have you joining me on my journey over the months to come –  heres a bit of a taster of just some of the projects I’m hatching:

Exploring the possibility of combining technology in the form of virtual and augmented reality with my large abstract paintings…. Extremely exciting!

Feasibility planning for a small art business. A cunning plan I have up my sleeve – attending  ‘setting up a small business’ course next week to get things going.

Teaching abstract this year – check out the new weekend painting course Improvers Abstract which I am teaching with Caroline Hulse. Starts in May. Come on you know you would love it!!!!.

Applied for a couple of National competitions along with 3 billion others but ‘you’ve got to be in it to win it!!’  or so someone said!!! :O) .. lets see what happens.

Arts Fairs & Arts Trails – I’m exhibiting and selling at the  Reading Contemporary Arts Fair 21/22 April 2018 – would be great to see you if you can make it.

Severn Vale Arts Trail – 5/6/7 May 2018 – come and visit me at my studio – you can have a go at painting if you fancy it :O)

Just a few of my plans and activities I won’t bore you with all of them now as we have plenty of time to go into details ….. oh did I mention Im off to France to scope out a commission (HUGE 200x200cm) as well as starting to design a fabulous painting holiday experience in Bordeaux for 2019, check out the planned location Rural Gites … more to come………. Ill shut up now :O)
