keeping going

the two above are my favourites from yesterdays life drawing class which finishes next week :(

searching yesterday uncovered all these unread books which will be my reward soon :)

all is going quite steadily, I had a lovely day yesterday and visited the gallery where my solo show will be , it is a lovely space and the people who run it are sound.
In the evening I saw an amazing animated film The Illusionist the sequel to Sylvain Chomets masterpiece Belleville Rendez-vous.
The Illusionist is based on an unproduced script by Jaques Tati about a down at heel magician , struggling in the fading moments of variety theatre and a young girl Alice who joins him on his travels.
I was captivated from start to finish ,the finish made me cry and if you get the chance to see it
the illusionist trailer

Hi Jane, absolutely agree, the illusionist is a wonderful film, I have seen it twice. Silence and loneliness were simply beautiful ! Germain

I love the bit where she lights the fire thinking its snowing outside and it was only feathers loose in the air :)

Yes, this scene is very poetic. In my side, I don't know if I have a favorite, but the end was a part of magic. Thank you for coming in my blog,
