the main event of the day ....it CAME as the baby owls in martin waddells fantastic book the owl babies said "I knew she'd come ...."
my dear blogging friend artist Laura Ferrara sent me a painting which I have been eagerly awaiting and amazingly the one I swapped with her arrived on the SAME day !.
Well here it is propped up on my favourite couch , soon to be given pride of place on the wall above.
where the forest meets the sea
oil on canvas
this was handmade probably in the 1950-60's by my husbands uncle.I found it abandoned and knew it to be TREASURE,....just look at the tiny wooden feed tray.
today ....look at the light !
some of us just KNOW instinctfully just what to do when you cant get out the door :)
I love this book cover so much , the time spent to make it so interesting under a paper cover
....just back from a lovely cycle , I KNOW that I have work to do but sure isn't it all the one !
These are the images that arrested me this morning ,random as ever.
I am going up to my studio now to draw,draw,draw and see what is there ....I have to keep the later half of the week for making things for my little ol' market stall,so time is of the essence (patchouli if you are interested )
I hope you enjoy these images ,do leave a comment ,its so nice to hear them :)
