My blogging space may have been quite slack lately, but my creative space is still full steam ahead. I am madly in love with my latest painting. It doesn’t always feel like this when I finish a piece, but this is the feeling I am always chasing. Knowing that it can feel this good is what pushes me along through all of the hard work.

I am embarking on a new series exploring the concept of “Community", for me the copper balls represent the people within the community that are tied together with the twine that symbolises different strands or groups within our larger communities.

I’m hoping to do a piece soon on my involvement with the bloggy community, but I haven’t yet come up with a way to represent it. What does community mean to you? Do you feel a stronger connection with your physical/locality community or your online community?
