Free Art Friday is taking place at R Space Gallery, Lisburn, Northern Ireland, today and the piece directly above is one I submitted which will hopefully be going to a nice new home if the postal service carried it there on time. Having not been well for the past month I thought it was time for some positive thinking (with an upside down option for the negatives of course) in the form of splashing about with paint.

These half full/empty designs began with tags and the playing card which I posted to tumblr and has since gained over 100, 000 notes there. I often send the smaller tags in parcels of mail art and Jessica Gowling of Nature’s My Friend has found a wonderful way of distributing these, check out her blog here: https://naturesmyfriend.wordpress.com/2012/03/01/spreading-some-positivity/

Life seems so perfect with a clear floor. A collection of photos, collages and prints from something I worked on last month which resulted in my drowning in paper. The stars have alot to answer for.

“When I have a terrible need of – dare I say the word – religion, then I go out at night to paint the stars…” – Vincent van Gogh 1888
