In a Muddle again!

As usual I’m getting confused.  I blame the medication but in truth I think it’s my personality, I’m just in denial about it.  I’m struggling to find my way around WordPress.  I’m hoping I’ll get there soon but I’m tearing my hair out in the meantime.  Surely it can’t be that difficult, doh!  For someone who studied on a BSc for computer aided visualisation I sure do have a difficult time on computers.  At least I know my way around Photoshop but that’s little help here.  Luckily, I find my scatty personality funny, as do people around me.  I must say though, funny is not the word that comes to mind when I’m trying to read what I previously wrote on here and reply to comments that were made.  It all seems so interesting and I can’t get in.  Like a child looking in the window of a sweetie shop, where everyone is having a great time and I can’t even get through the door. Ha! I’ll shall have to paint that, it seems like a good analogy for quite a few situations in life.  

Anyway, never mind all that, I’m here about my art.  I’ve got all the equipment for encaustic painting now.  I did an abstract piece this morning that I’m quite pleased with but I need to work on the technique. I have four pieces to produce for an exhibition in the summer and an exhibition I am in next month. I am at present exhibiting until the end of this month and so I’m pretty well booked.  I want to work on marketing my work online but I’m going to find it difficult to find time.  I’ll give it a good try anyway.

If anyone can give me someImage tips on how to use WordPress effectively, I’d really appreciate it.  Do I need to build a website for instance?  I already have quite a few! 


About larainbriggs

Larain Briggs is a Camberwell artist born in Essex in 1960. She first studied art formally under a local Kent artist, Nick Bristow, RA. This was followed by a Foundation Course at Maidstone Art College and a BA(Hons) in fine art at Camberwell College (UAL). She has also supplemented her skills by studying Computer Aided Visualisation, Art Education (PGCE at Goldsmiths), Psychology, and Art Therapy. Larain’s art was recognized on leaving Camberwell when Sweet Waters Gallery exhibited her work and represented her at various venues including the Islington Business Design Centre. While she continues to frequently exhibit in the UK, in London and East Anglia, she has exhibited in Bulgaria, Madrid, Brussels, and Milan. Her work is collected worldwide. Currently, she is exhibiting in Suffolk at The Hangman’s Gallery. Larain's work has for many years been inspired by Carl Jung and the exploration of the unconscious mind. She often works in a similar manner to the process of the Surrealists, “automatism”. Mostly she is inspired by the work of other artists and is influenced by her environment and mood. The images equivocate between figurative content and abstract form. The conceptualization can be at times ambiguous and enigmatic. Experimental use of media and found objects are employed as a means to express automatic or unconscious influences on perception and memory. She explains her process as a lifelong spiritual journey of self-discovery. View all posts by larainbriggs
