From my desk this week- Last Boot Camp

Final Artwork for July Boot Camp.
 Hello from my desk this week. It feels like ages since I visited my blog. It's been a crazy few weeks The rush to get projects done before the school holidays. Numerous visits to the Physiotherapy department at the hospital which has all been worth it as I can now walk unaided  again building up the strength in my leg. The school holidays have started so now the pace has slowed down lazy park days and night shift work. So things might be a little quiet on my blog but I will be popping in from time to time.

Here is  my final  artwork revealed as part of the last assignment of boot camp.  We all had to make personal piece for someone special in my life.

I decided to dedicate this piece to some of my friends despite having a bit of a rough time in their own lives just now. Are still there for you through your own rough times.
Coffee was my favourite beverage. Coffee just makes life alright we have a good times with our friends chatting and drinking any time of  the day.

I just wanted the piece to feel like that first great coffee in the day that makes the  beginning of the day feel great. Morning sunshine is a message to say it's all going to be okay today.

Final idea fabric and stitched.

Final artwork submitted to the gallery.

So checkout the last boot camp gallery. Feeling a little sad it's over but very glad I took part and met some great artists from around the world and learnt some much from Lilla Rogers classes.

Have a great weekend.  XX
The gallery is now open.

From my desk this week- Boot Camping Just for fun.

Just For Fun Susse Ltd ©2014
Hello from my desk this week. Starting Monday morning off by doing something for fun. What a great way to start the week off.  Lilla Rogers boot camp has nearly come to an end. The final assignment was revealed. It's all about exploring creating art just for fun or a gift for a loved one and I still can't reveal my final piece of work yet but all will be revealed in the last gallery show next week.

It's nice feeling just to have a fun brief to work towards this month. I think as a creative person it's important to just make art for fun to refresh new ideas and create something that is personal to you.

Why not just try something for fun this week.

From my desk this week- Boot camping and drinking.

First drink of the day water.
Hello from my desk this week. You might be wondering what are all these photos about?
It is the last month of Boot Camp with Lilla Rogers Studio School. This week you get to have a little peak into my daily world and the things I like to drink during the day. This months assignment kicks off exploring the drinks and your personal style through out the week. I can't show you the art work I have made about each drink this week but all will be revealed next week.

First thing I drink a cup of water and take my vitamins. I use Rocket's tooth brush cup. I love the design so much it really starts the day off on a happy note. I usually get up very early as we have a keen six year old bouncing around the house at 5.30am in the morning. Make the family breakfast Rocket's pack lunch. But first the coffee goes on and I wake up  sip and stare out the window and at the beginning of the London commuters make their way to work. By 8.30 our street is crazy any mode of transport is going on as people rush to work and school. Skate boards, bikes, kids in bike carriages, scooters both adults and kids, roller skates, runners with backpacks, black taxis and sleepy people crammed on the bus. I often want to make a drawing of this.

So first coffee of the day and a people watch very important start to my day.

Here are some more images of my day with drinks.
More Coffee in  the morning before starting work.
Afternoon tea a peak inside our drinks cupboard.
Green tea afternoon pick up.
Elder flower cordial fresh summer drink.
Goodnight Chai for  sweet dreams.

Of course it is Friday and in true London tradition it will be the start of the weekend and it will be wine O'clock ( a good NZ wine of course)  so cheers!!!

Have  a great weekend. XX

First coffee wake up time.Usually drunk in the kitchen making Rocket's school lunch and breakfast for  the family.
Stare out the window watching everyone whizzing by on their bikes,sleepy people on buses and the odd skateboarder..
More coffee after the school drop off start working until the school pick up.
A peek into our drinks cupboard. Tettley"s tea, Coffee,chai hot chocolate green tea mm which one today?
