This is my latest felt painting (I work as an artist as well as a coach) and it comes with a story.
I woke up a few weeks ago with a clear idea of what to felt. I thought because I had a clear end point it would be straightforward to felt.
It was really complicated and needed lots of research about how gannets dive and their physiology to make sure I got the proportions and shapes just right. .
I learnt that just because I had a clear dream I still had to work really hard to make it happen and I had to stay completely focused on my end point.
I’ve called this piece ‘Focus’ because of my experience and because every aspect of the gannet is aligned and precisely focused so that he can survive the dive and catch dinner!
