Art is singing out stronger than writing at the moment. I was thinking about my first abstract and talking to my partner about it but he couldn’t remember it.
I felt sad that I had no record of it as produced it in 1998 and has long since been sold and long before the type of digital media we have today. Then yesterday I was sorting through all my art materials as my daughter has given me the privileged task of designing her wedding dress and for me to work I have to be organised.
Talking of old and new as I thumbed through old sketch books I found some fond felt sketches and instinct said photograph them with my iPad and upload them to my social media sites.
A long time ago I created a Facebook page called Ali P Positive Art but sadly admit have not contributed to it for a very long time but again instinct kicked in and said upload my pictures to their after all it is an art based social media page.
So obligingly I did and the little voice is strong today for it said “Luke I am your father” no it said look in previous work you have uploaded so I did and there was a picture of my first abstract and I still have no idea how it got there (“Hello LOA”) but now I Am Happy not sad.
