CRY BABY

When the kids were little I used to work with their drawings to make things for them. I made all manner of things including murals, bags, clothes and much more.

I had just completed a quilt made with the drawings James and Eve had done to welcome Helen into the world.

Then I started on this with the intention of recovering the baby bouncer. But before I had chance to finish it I went into labour. It never did get finished.

That was more than thirty years ago. I don’t think it ever will now. What do you think?

Playing with Shadow and Light – 2001

As I wasn’t able to plant out this soulless garden I had to find another way to make it interesting.
 
The only saving grace as far as I was concerned were the amazing colours of the bore stains, which I imitated when painting the fence. Every day at the same time I painted the shadows and sunlight as they fell on the fence.
 
It was so enjoyable watching what I can only describe as a giant garden-sized sundial. As painted shadows and sun light approached the real ones, before overlapping and moving on. A wonderful play of light and shade, real and fake.
 
An added bonus was that it was always sunny in my garden, no matter what the weather
