all new ...backwards to someplace over there

I am feeling lost so I decided to go backwards to someplace over there to find something new*double life of veronique one of my all time favourite films * she lived an alternative life  a drawing from a few years back* tommy chipperfield love that man and his show horses at duffys circus* circus has saved my sanity on occasion * I love working with poloroids but they are so expensive this is one of my favourite ones of all time * oh this lost drawing is the projectionist I only found it the other day I was going to do something about the white bit on his glasses ..........

slowly slowly

page of my ideas book
my ideas book is one of my favourite places at the moment , I am eager to make my new work , but it is taking time to come out into drawing ... it is gathering a momentum slowly .........
I am so happy to have started a new collaborative drawing project with cendrine rovini and I want to thank katy shayne  (see jan 10th entry) for her continued support.

work in progress



favourite new/old plate
minton 1890-1920

with the three darlings gone back to school today !!!
I am gearing up to make the most of my time in the morning to create a new body of work. 
I have to be patient as my work is so slow , what I do to make it ,its feels the right way ....but it is slow three hours to draw those flowers in the pool , only to decide to paint a wash of ink over them :( and then I am wondering WHY oh WHY  do I use the most faded , fragile ,falling apart paper to actually draw on .....but then I know its the piece that felt right and I also know that I will be doing a lot more work on these pieces, which seems to strengthen/resolve(disolve !!) them .
