First page

The words at the top of the page say: "You have the scene arrange itself - as it will seem to do....."

It's a snippet from one of the poems in the book, and seemed appropriate as this was the inside of the book cover and I had no idea what I was doing.  I think Laura has a perfume bottle like this one so there's an unintentional similarity - apologies!





I worked on a second one as well which I'd stated a while back.  It's my guerrilla gardening notebook, and I'm trying to keep a record of what we've done, but in a relaxed fun way.


 I have a collection of papers and bits which I raided.  This is anaglypa wallpaper used as a table protector when I was spraying some labels last year.

Below: inks through a stencil, and a monoprint of a perfume bottle.

Then it was just a matter of collage and fiddling about with paint and oil sticks.





 
More to do on this yet, but I'll let it dry for a while!

  3. Your work always lifts me, even when I thought I was already high! (metaphorically speaking, of course)
