Merry Christmas everyone! Look forward to meeting you again in Jan 2012. Meanwhile, sending you this bright wintry greeting from Northam, Devon.
And if you feel like a little bit of holiday reading, check out Tara Pappas’s delightful blog: Artful Explorations in Nature. This is fast becoming an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the myriad ways we can engage with the natural environment through arts activity.
You might like to read her recent interview with me. Here’s a short extract:
TP: “What inspires you most when you are in the natural environment?
LG: I would say it is my feeling of connection with the earth and air, and all of its life forms. It is not so much any particular aspects of the natural environment that attract me – the beauty of plants and leaves, the texture of stone or the strength of trees for instance. All this is a vital part of my experience of course, but I am not setting out to look for these things – the beauty arises naturally out of my process of connecting”.
Wishing you a year of wonderful connections for 2012!
