henrietta adams 1920tinderbox (duh !)oh.....a totally narcissistic image of my little tin and me :)

alls well,.....and I am enjoying just being and not doing much ........ , my energy is returning slowly, I got excited on my return from a 5 mile cycle... (I assure you I was being with the whole feeling of cycling... I wasnt doing it you see)...... seeing the connections between my red clogs ,the red on the little tin and my lovely sprouting forsythia twiglets.
I am lucky to be able to show some work again with tinderbox , the collective that I am a proud member of. I cant go up to Dublin this time but a little blue horse and edith holden will ably represent me .Good luck with the show all at tinderbox.
Oh B.T.W....if you would like to see some more photos of the recent tinderbox picture show click here :)

I love supermarket sarah she is the bomb :)

Hi Jane ~ I adore "Song for Edith Holden". I could not help but feel cheered to see your wonderfully festive garments as you hold those dear tinned twiglets ~.~

I love your way to wear beautiful colored dresses Jane ! (I'm in love with dresses too)
Your two new works are amazing... :)
The Tinderbox show looks tremendous and I would like to see it in real life, you know. I feel hungry to have a real show too.

Congratulations for all !

Jane O Sullivan said...

thank you cendrine !
but in truth ,these two pieces are not super new , I am finding it very hard to make new work at the moment .......but it is a great feeling to know that my work will be out there (for three days )...at the group show .
I would LOVE to have a proper solo show of my work (one day .........)
you are always making new work ...I think you are the best !
yay for dresses :)

hello ritva , are you hurrying along like the white rabbit in Alice :)...nice to hear from you .
Hello Laura , glad you liked my new version of song for edith holden (I have so many more drawings and work around this woman .....fingers crossed that I am able to make some of them at least ) and I will certainly keep you updated with my satorial choces ...to be honest its only on saturdays at the market that anyone else even see them :)....well I guess the trees , the dogs and the few people round here do !
