2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,800 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Our Garden – 4

This is the 4th Cut-Out in the series.  I love making these and I love the colours.  In each one I have taken a part of the first one and enlarged it each time, so the shapes have got bigger and bigger.  It is very different from the paintings and it is exciting to try something that makes you do things in a different way.Taz's-4th-Cut-Out-compressed

Our Garden – 3

This is the latest of the cut-outs and I like this one the best.  It is really bright and bold and already I’ve started on number 4.  I think the bigger shapes work better than the smaller ones and makes it look more dramatic.  What do you think?

This is the latest cut-out inspired by the Matisse exhibition.  It is still based on our garden and I plan to do two more.  I have just started the third.  It is slow and sticky, but I love doing these.  It is a large size and takes a lot of time but it is different from working with paint and it is good to try something new.  Let me know what you think.

Our Garden in Summer

This is my latest art work.  I have done this Cut-Out after going to see the Matisse Cut-Out exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.  I loved the exhibition and I wanted to try to make a picture, too.  I went out with mum to buy lots of different coloured papers and large card.  This is the first of four pictures that I’m going to do.

It was quite difficult to do because it was very fiddly and sticky, but I really enjoyed doing it.  I’m going back to see the Matisse again with my dad.  At the moment I’m not thinking about selling the picture, because I want to do all four first.  It is size A1.

Working in my Studio

This is me today trying to finish my cut-out based on mum’s garden. It’s taken much longer than I thought it would. I’ve got three more to do and they are all large. I’ve really loved trying something different. Making all the different shapes is very fiddly, next time I’m going to try bigger shapes and see what happens.  It takes a bit of getting used to and next time I will make it a bit more simple.  But I’m learning!!
