testing, testing...

I love how these 'test sheet' that I have lying around in the studio almost look like pieces of art in themselves...

Saw the Portico Quartet live last night...amazing! If you like jazz/classical combos then go here to check out their myspace page and hear the sweet sounds...the radio one session track is phenomenal!

...and then I woke up (or thereabouts)...


I woke up in the middle of the night absolutely terrified by a vivid dream about an earthquake...the whole house felt as if it were shaking, picture frames tapping against the wall and the tv wobbling around...my heart was pounding in my chest I was so scared but then I managed to calm myself down, it was only a dream (even if the birds were singing loudly in the middle of the night, that's okay...) and I fell back asleep thinking about the plates of the earth shifting and how earthquakes work or whatever...

At 1am this morning the uk had it's biggest
earthquake since 1984!
That is crazy (maybe not to some but here in the comfy cozy uk it is most unusual)! Last nite an earthquake made my whole house shake and I can't believe it! My brain feels very invigorated by the forces of nature and I've been painting all day long which makes a change to the past few weeks cogitation...

Today's vintage photo find...which I meant to post last week and forgot...totally weirds me out. This is what would happen if you cross bred slugs with seals...nightmarish.

model|muse|motivation: restraint...

It's not always about the detail, it's about the restraint, it's about what's not there. Slightly sad but with a bass note of joyous redemption...

Absence makes the heart grow fonder...

I'm here...just beavering away in the studio with my drawings and not a lot to show as yet!! There are however lots of new postcard sets in the shop...all the old faves...

Did I have a fabulous time in NY...well, of course...trudging around piles of crap in Salvation Army shops in Brooklyn is one of my favorite things to do and I have the fabulous supplies to show for it :))
