I am back ...(.some new very best finds,a brand new drawing and an old one too )

two early 1970's cardboard drinks mats...I LOVE the images.....I found these on the ground at my beloved Portobello market in London last week ...oh 20p the man said (20p for such beauties !)
oh...behind the round mats are two pieces of the old wallpaper I peeled of my parents bedroom wall as they are getting their room decorated and these really old bits were behind the radiator....LOVING the colours)
my favourite trader always has very random things to sell (a bit like me I guess) , but I always find something there that just has to come home . This is a tryptych of original Victorian photographs of the same model .I like her smile and she seems very much part of the action ,its very like poses that I would do.It is an important piece of inspiration to me.I am looking forward to seeing where it takes me .
