Paper collage on watercolour paper - some paint and ink, mounted on black art card. I'm looking forward to completing enough collages for the exchange so that I can get on with painting. My head is full of ideas I want to explore and I wish I was more diligent about using a visual diary to record and then explore them. Mostly I scribble ideas down on bits of paper - if I'm out, the back of a receipt in my bag, or if I'm asleep and wake with an idea I rummage around in the bedside drawer for something similar. Then I come across bits of paper lying around with these notes about ideas I've forgotten, or I'll almost remember something and can't quite get it and don't know where I wrote it down. Despite years of being organised in my job, and years of academic study, I'm as absent minded as ever.
