a lot happening this Summer
the studio exterior has been TRANSFORMED by house painter C. her daughter F., and carpenter husband M.: from tatty, worn, weary and shabby to a bright BLUE and CREAMY white, while at the same time vastly improving the look of the wild-flower border
the house got a makeover as well: a glimpse of what has happened over there: a sunny YELLOW, combining beautifully with same blue and cream.....
how would we 'move' foot-less, how would we eat 'mouth-less' how would we create 'hand-less' how would we communicate 'brain-less' how would we make connections.....
many questions here
the white roses out back, once they get going, continue to bring joy no matter the weather! we have hardly had a Summer to speak of, a couple of hot days, many more grey, rainy and too cold to my liking....the upside being of course that one can be far more active.....who knows though, we might get to enjoy an Indian Summer on the yellow porch
four mourning birds
wanted to paint Viggo, or so I thought, my hand moved somewhere else, connecting inward......to the pain
finally got round to making ink-wash drawings yesterday, feeling pretty guilty to boot! having been busy with the outdoor-painters (and then redoing stuff ín the home, notice how you notice the shabbiness once something looks nice and new?) clearing out the Big House down south, being entertained by two dogs! mycelium-experiments, helping one son move, driving other son to & fro, moving stuff in general
in short life
