Saturday the day of making a mess in my studio / room, perfect for catching up on much needed sleep, wonderful, and the chance to snap a few pictures. I’m currently working on a little painting another practice piece before I do my proper paintings, when it comes to canvas painting i’ve never been the most confident soul, I have to admit, but right now I am loving just getting back into it all. What have you been working on recently?
So in other news lately I have taken up yoga, I tweeted about it the other day, I use to do a bit when I was at uni (that an pilates) , living in a town that was filled with surfers, hippies and students you couldn’t move the amount of yoga classes, so the other day I bought myself a yoga matt from Aldi £2 (totally a happy coincidence) I had forgotten how ridiculous calming it is, after stretching my body for the first time properly in years my muscles totally relaxed (believe it or not i’m actually ridiculously flexible cue my old Gymnastic days my flexibility isn’t something I should openly admit to thousands of readers but oh well he he) I remembered a few moves from my old yoga days but I found a really helpful tutorial on youtube jus type in yoga for beginners its perfect, so really there is no excuses not to give it a go.
So these are the first proper photos of my ombre hair, still not sure if its going to stay much longer then a week, everyone at work gave me mixed reviews I guess they are just use to seeing me with darker hair, thank you for all the lovely comments on my previous post about the change in colour, it was such a palaver to get it to this colour I am still in two minds about it, but I do have all the necessary colours waiting in the wings from me to change so theres no worry there.
I do though have so rather sad news (well not that sad) but after suffering from repetitive strain in my elbows for about 8 years now ( due to too much drawing i know!) i have some how now developed it in my wrists and finger joints ( i’m only 24!) drawing and painting turns into absolute agony after about 15 minutes Believe me I have used all the tricks in the book to stop the swelling and pain, but to no relief and the sad moment came the other day when I developed shooting pains up my fingers ( hello lovely torn cartilage and lumps) I totally 100% no the answer is too all together stop drawing for 3-6 months to settle it but I genuinely can’t, until then I will be taking arm Ice baths and strapping it up to the max. Maybe i should take up hand yoga…does that even exist? haha!
