Yesterday I had to give up an 'art' day to do an extra day's supply teaching; bills to pay ya-de-ya-de. The school was one I hadn't worked at before and I had a pretty good day there, very impressed with the organisation - I was given a supply pack on arrival with a map and outline of the school day and all the lessons were planned and ready to deliver! Made origami with a low ability group in a lesson on imperatives (fun!) and met a little girl's cat who was making a visit for the last lesson of the day - I really wanted to go to that lesson instead of teach yr 9!
So today on my only day away from school this working week I went Christmas shopping for all my friends on this side of the Irish sea and opened up a new shop on folksy for my Art work: maintaining my redbubble name the shop is called Red Shed Art
This evening I played around with designing a shop banner and am starting with a black and white square cropped kind of a look, I think I'm still under the influence of those frosty webs at the weekend!
There are postcards on order and I'm going to list some images available to buy as prints and I'm going to finish that ttv painting which is still leaning up against the wall upstairs and I'm going to break open the four new square canvases I got today and then I'll have a mini series of paintings for my new shop!
