After over a week of struggling with painting and decorating I’ve moved to a new shop at the Ladywell shopping center in Newtown (The Market is closing for redecoration for a year).CameraZOOM-20140313141831376-picsay

The idea to have an Art and Craft shop first appeared in my head while walking among blue lupins of Texas at 1999 LPSC spring gathering. So I am very happy to have an independent little “hippie / gypsy” shop of my own and I hope I could stay here for a while. This also will be my art studio.

The shopping centre is mostly empty at the moment but several market traders should follow me very soon.CameraZOOM-20140313141743040-picsay

I’ve also used this opportunity to change the name of the shop from Artish Folk to Art-n-Folk which, I think, sounds better. CameraZOOM-20140313142822927-picsay  CameraZOOM-20140313142010045-picsay  CameraZOOM-20140313152522714-picsay

I’ve already had quite a number of people I know (and I don’t know) saying that they liked the way the shop turned out, which is encouraging. I’ve spent ages figuring out exact shades of the wall paint but then I’ve found out that the type of paint which sticks to the slat wall can’t be mixed in the decorating shop so I had to improvise adding my oil paint to the base color I’ve found. CameraZOOM-20140313152634887-picsay

The shop supposed to be weird, bohemian and wonderful which should go well with punk clothing and an artisticCameraZOOM-20140313152645534-picsay CameraZOOM-20140313153631311-picsayhairdresser moving next door soon. It is for people living creative lives and preferring to decorate their lives with one of a kind stuff.

The shop address is  Unit 12 Ladywell Newtown, Powys SY16 1AF.

Open (at least) on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10 am till 4 pm.

sketch

Running low on my sketchbook pages, I’ve decided to make my own little book. With a thick thread I’ve sewn together about 17 pages (folded in two) of random card and paper. Then added a ribbon. It looks very handmade.

For a while I felt like doing more sketching but what should I sketch? I am so busy with running the shop and doing housework that I don’t usually have time to wander around with a sketch book. Plus it rains a lot in Wales. When we travel everybody are trying to see as much as possible and again there is no chance to slow down and do plein air art.

Recently Kids have shown me the Geoguessr game. I am really amazed at how beautiful our planet is. Even along the roads. I’ve decided to try an adventure: to sketch something at that random place on Earth where the game makes me to “materialise”. As I don’t copy any images slavishly there shouldn’t be a copyright issue. I’ve been luckily to find myself among golden fields, under cumulus clouds, with hills and mountains on the horizon. So I did a quick acrylic pens, pencils, ink and graphite sketch. I am looking forward doing it again somewhere else!
