Since we came back from Oz I've not been posting much to Moblog. I have however been following what most of you have been getting up to, couldn't miss that. There was a problem with not being able to post from my phone directly, which is a problem for me being away from home most of the time. That's sorted now, had to do with the (XL-ent) changes recently to MoblogUK.
I've kind of been persuaded that I should do more with (some of) my images and artwork.
I'm gradually getting enough "stuff" together to maybe put on a bit of an exhibition (or maybe just make an exhibition of myself, we'll see).
These are mock-ups of potential three-panel canvases of some abstract works. I had a couple of frames spare in the attic so I put together these three too. It doesn't look bad, close up, frames, glass and matting make such a difference to an image and its presentation but I'll be going much bigger in size than this shortly and investing in some serious canvases.
There are "proper" photos in the mix too, some black and white work, wedding pictures, landscapes, not sure if I should theme the display or mix the lot up, see which ones generate interest (assuming anyone turns up).
Early days yet, I've a few options and ideas for venues, maybe even multi-venues (which will solve the "theme or mix" dilemma)
Time scale is before the end of this year, which gives me four months and should be more than enough time, or not nearly enough, we'll see.
Steep learning curve, nothing I know anything about, as yet.
So, I'm still here, lurking in the background.
About time I did something with this and put it to bed for good, can't say I never tried then, in my old age.
You're all invited to opening night, there will be nibbles and wine, lots of red wine (I'll be the drunk one, slumped in the corner)
and espresso coffee, I make it with a lemon twist, you like!

Wonderful! Good luck, Joker. I'd buy that red, white and black one one the left in a second, it matches my kitchen. :)
