The Big Painting Challenge

Although i enjoy watching the BBC’s Big Painting Challenge and I know it’s a competition … but it can be soul destroying when these good amateur artists are torn down every week by the judges (I know they have to have an opinion). Someone on their facebook page commenting… ‘Such a promising idea….just so exasperated by the judges comments. Are they teachers? Their negativity is astounding! Criticism can and should be given in a positive, encouraging manner…not fault finding and crushing. This programme does not sit well and one can only feel pity for the way the contestants have been treated and let down.’ What do you think?

One of my aims is to encourage others to lift their own pens, pencils and paint brushes and start to enjoy their creativity again. If visual art isn’t your thing… then what about woodwork..sewing..sculpture…photography…crafting…poetry…creative writing … just get over the fear and try

Have a wonderful Christmas!

worth 2012 042

I’ve attended over twenty silent retreats in the past number of years – I love them!  These have mostly been here in Northern Ireland…at Corrymeela and the Benedictine Monastery in Rostrevor.  I’ve also been to Worth Abbey in England a couple of times and I did the above painting when I was there!   I thought it may be nice to share it with you…and to wish you a very lovely Christmas!  Let’s hope 2015 will be another great creative year!!  Moyra 🙂 x
