a very productive week, or how I spent my quarantine
a dead finch Viggo found in our garden
Nature is not kind, it just Is
I'm working on a book full of questions and what we call Nature is featured as well, that's all I can say now
'do dogs dream? if so, what about?'
'weighing my options'
scrumptious antique letters and numbers, I love them
an idea that had been swirling in my head for a while now, so I just went and bought them online
I'm into making series-of-sorts, which keep on going.....
like the one below I call 'Messages from the Past' as I'm painting figures over notes my parents made:
a wormcard I made after reading Grace's post
'yup, the fish I caught was this BIG'
not showing everything here because I haven't even made photo's of it all
After two regular jabs, topped off by a recent booster I caught the dreaded virus; yep both my husband and I tested positive. Our seven day quarantine had us cooped up together, which in our case is very much 'normal life' as we both work from home in our individual spaces. We did not feel very ill at all if I'm honest, like a very minor cold or maybe that was the vaccin working, it's also why we think it was omicron. Okay, so now we are super-immuun which is great. I had lots of time on my hands and apart from walking outdoors, with or without husband and/or dogs, I spent most of it in my studio, playing with the letters and inks, and I finally got round to sprucing up The Dwelling, several rooms needed a make-over, especially OBK's as he wanted more private-room-space and it turned out having to stay at home was a really good thing as it was, of course, a lot more work than I had anticipated.
I made a video, you can click on the link here
Hope you’re better soon!
Saskings perhaps? or Saskinks?
it's weird, to me at least, how the addition of the letters seems to blend organically with the painting...maybe it's best I don't fully get what's happening, or how
oh, Saskinks has a great ring to it, thXx for this new word
transformed...such intricacy...attention to detail just love and also that OBK has needs
as OBK would say: 'but of course, don't we all?'
love you and all your new work.
