My major exhibition at college went well, and I now have a Foundation degree in Applied Art and Design, I have been accepted for the BA Hons degree course in the same subject so have one more year to do.
The local summer Arts festival was a bit of a wash out due to the weather, but we did manage one and half days (details and pictures on my Facebook page if anyone is interested)
I am currently taking some time doing some of my own art (as opposed to school stuff) and updating my website www.geraldineboley.com, with new work. I have discovered that I like human portraiture as well as the animal kind and have been playing around with charcoal and pastel.
Something that my course has given me is a new perspective on my own work, and having experimented with lots of subjects and different media, I have come almost full circle back to pastels, although I now also enjoy dabbling with water colour, acrylic and collage. I am looking at other ways of using pastels as I have become slightly bored with my style of working, and have become very enthusiastic about using their inherent properties to the full, and also looking at a wider scope of subjects, so this will be my next step.......
