I started dragonshades out of curiosity.
I think I treated this Blog the way a painter treats an easel. By placing a post on the screen I was then able to take a step back and see what I’d done but from a different angle and with a fresh eye. My first followers came as a great surprise. So focused had I been on my work that I hadn’t realized that other people might be interested too. I was slightly shocked by the idea that by being aware of outside attention I might start adapting what I was doing in order to attract more viewers. But that thought soon passed because I found it impossible to be anyone other than myself.
When I become interested in something, it feels like being drawn into the “world” that something occupies.
The thing that had attracted my attention was color and shortly after I added shape to the exploratory mix.
As a sculptor I had spent a few decades looking at things. My childhood on the West Coast of Scotland gave me the chance to look at things ranging in size from tiny shells to great mountains and curiously formed islands. I would collect pebbles from the beach and by using a shallow bowl or plastic tray filled with water, I could arrange these variously shaped stones to create my own Inner and Outer Hebrides. Looking down on my “islands”, I could imagine that I was a Sea Eagle, swooping high above. Placing the tray on a table I could circumnavigate like a sailor and watch the shapes alter as I viewed them from different angles. Then like a giant I could pick one up and place it in my hand.
Dragonshades always has been about how I see things. Along the way however I became very curious about how you see things.
The result is my new website www.choice.expert
