I'm so pleased to have been accepted into this group, even though I feel like a beginner at school again. Everyone's work is so great and so inspiring.
I'm Jez, and my blog is http://jezartjournal.blogspot.com, which I call Butterfly Mind because it suits my mind these days as I flit from one idea, style or experiment to another.
I reckon I must be the oldest member at 77, but I hope that won't put anyone off collaborating with me.
I am, of course, retired and enjoying retirement and old age as much as any other time in my life. I gave up selling my work some time ago, and now paint and collage and blog simply for my own enjoyment and to experiment with new techniques. I never realised how much fun blogging would add to my life, and I treasure all the lovely people I have 'met' through the blog.
I love painting postcards and sending them to friends, and look forward to doing a postcard swap.
The children with clock faces, all at different times, is my favourite postcard. No wonder they're late for meals.
I'd love a ride on the back of a Harley, but the idea doesn't go down well at home.
A couple of weeks ago I made a little series of cat postcards like these:
The next one is just an experimental journal page in acrylic:
and finally, a journal page including a little collage:
Looking forward to getting involved, Jez
