Bleached Branch

A winter branch for December! Even though we hardly ever get snow down here, I still can’t help but imagine it. It’s been ages since I’ve sat and worked on things like this, so I’m feeling a little rusty..! This is one of about 7 versions that I’m toying with.

This branch has last year and next in its branch and seeds, so it seemed right for now!

Wishing you warmth, friendship and love, through December and on.

We’ve had a bit of extra summer here this past week or so, clear days with a low warm sun..all the plants seem a little confused – a primrose in my garden actually thought it was spring and bloomed a few days ago!

I wanted to try and catch some lightness into these, as light as I could get without fading or forcing them out..

I never realised cabbages could be beautiful!

It was hard to work out the light and blur in this one – too much dark and it was too cabbagey, too light and it lost its structure..hoping I’ve found a happy medium..!

I was excited last weekend to find that my music and photographs were featured on Elsa Mora’s generous and lovely blog, Art is a Way.

I’ve been a huge admirer of Elsa’s work for several years now – her intricate papercut work and other fantastic creations are so inspiring.  I feel really honoured to be listed there!

The first featured image was one that I had kind of put to the back of my mind, and it was nice to be reminded of it. It inspired me to give this small girl a new view..
