Peripatetic Art of Running

For this weeks AlphabeThursday post for the letter P, (click on the badge below for more posts) I would like to introduce my new blog - The Peripatetic Art of Running. 

I have taken on a new mission to get fit and healthy lately and have been running since January.  It's been a slow process, the wrong trainers for the way I run left me with rather bad shin pain, so I had to just go very very slow and easy, but keep going I did.

As usual, I find it impossible to embark on something without emerging myself totally in it, so have decided that the best way to deal with this aspect of my personality is to make art about it.

I've started exploring the colours and shapes I see when I'm out running, taking photographs on the move, and then abstracting them onto paper. I'm quite pleased with yesterdays endeavours.
