So this week turned out to be a bit crazy! After the article came out, I had journalists on my case. There are a couple of agencies out there who want to help me take my story to national women's magazines or papers.
With this week being one of my 'difficult' ones, it really did my head in. Too many questions, pressure and a sense of urgency that wasnt really needed made my head spin. I didnt get the college work finished that I wanted to, and I've been a bit more stressed out with the girls than usual.
I've had more ideas for art work, and even managed to complete a new piece. It really helped to get my mind off everything else. Simple, and some may say silly, but you'll have to wait and see!!
I was inspired last weekend when my boyfriend and I visited Southampton Art Gallery. We saw the Bridget Riley exhibition. It was amazing. I remember looking at her work in college, but to see it for real, and to learn more about her was inspiring. It's right up my street too! Colour, how it makes you feel, how it works next to other colours, contrasts and movement. Portraying the natural world in it's basic forms of colour and vibrations. I have had some really good ideas for more artwork, and might even go back and see the exhibition again while it's there. I'm always looking for ideas and imagery that helps me to convey the emotions of PMDD, and I have some plans to do some paintings that focus on the colour red. Red rage, seeing red, menstruation, anger, warning, danger, blood, life, fire... all key things that come to mind when I think about my PMDD.... watch this space!!
