from this, to this
the sheep have invaded. can't move around my tiny flat without tripping over them. their benign, staring faces and psychedelic coats are getting to me. have been deliriously, happily housebound for days, weeks, sheltering from the bleak weather and printing like a madwoman. trees, buildings, dinosaurs, birds, spots, stripes, antlers, flowers, super rabbits, cats, dogs and ... sheep!
everywhere i look - a dog's breakfast of colour, pattern, shapes, line, texture.
get me out of here!
and what? throw myself into the gothic weather? okay.
or i could just do this -
simple, serene, abstract.
oooh look. and another one. balance. calm.
may as well do three. now it can hang in a doorway like a japanese thingey, what are they called?
don't like the one on the right. too similar to the second one.
but i do like the uneven lengths.
framing my art deco bathroom. an utterly useless thing.
though it does have a certain 'come hither' appeal.
off to get a life.
