Walter’s Art News
Welcome to the my Art News, first one for the year! Note that I have changed the way I send these. Please let me know how it looks on your computer or phone.
The story so far
Thousand Sketches in one year 2006-7. Then a new Art Blog, about four exhibitions and two painting weeks in 2008. I wrote an article about creativity, “Engaging the Muse”, for the Psychodrama Journal 2008. This year a dramatic shift, I hate to say it, but not a lot of art. But not a death! The artist in me is restless, alive.
I went from digital to physical. Hard. It takes more time and space. I need a studio. I need a year off work. I did a few that I quite like. I also made some hybrids, that I like even better. I have a hunch when I get going again it will be digital as a basis for printmaking, collage and a variety of digital to physical productions. Some day soon!
Leaves – A favourite hybrid
One thing I did was to put up a new set of images on the Gallery: Outliers I call them. They were all from the Thousand Sketches but had not been printed, exhibited or noticed by me, but on review I thought they were OK!
I dug out this jug.
Challenge & Change the image for the 2009 New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists conference was also an image that is used on a book by Cambridge Univeristy Press, they are using another image of mine for a book in the series.

Printing. I am about to get some biggish prints made of old images. The Challenge & Change image and also of this one:
And of course I love art & post about other people’s. People like this.
When I’m not sketching
I am busy with Psychodrama and training to be a Trainer, Educator & Practitioner in the method. Writing, supervision, workshops. I am revising the curriculum, and also developing a Training in Supervision programme, with a workshop coming up soon. The pressure will come off early next year I imagine. I work on the Kate’s Horse Trekking business. Especially the blog, & websites. And I walk the dog!
