Always making stuff & always curious.

Rose Madder's Letters:
I've known Rose Madder for a long time yet I can't remember how this started.
Every so often she sends me an envelope with a drawing/poem/story/ideas/or painting inside it of the things she has seen and heard.
I've kept them all and now I'm guardian of the chronicles of Rose's life.
Rose has kindly granted permission for me to post some here.
P.S. She particularly approved of the name of this site.

Whittled Mushroom and Acorn

The mushroom is approx. 25mm high and 16mm dia. The acorn is approx. 29mm long and 19mm dia.
Lime wood and Stanley knife.

For a bit over a year I've been doing an experiment: to create a large piece of work. Usually my ink drawings are tiny (the largest being 8cms square) and I wanted to see if I could knit them together in one drawing. Inspiration came from a Soundgarden lyric and with Chris Cornell's voice in my head I picked up my pen. It was an auspicious start.

The nearer it got to completion the harder it was to complete and I bottled it. I stopped at a point I was reasonably happy with for fear of pushing too hard and it going too far away from my initial vision. So here it is: Colony (in my gallery) which, ironically, went way away from my initial vision!

But now I am going back to the original to push a bit harder. (Another song lyric, Nostalghia, I think).

Crikey, I'm a little stunned! Your comments and support mean a huge, I mean HUGE, amount to me. I'm at work (first day back) feeling a bit meh and here you are putting bounce into my spirit. I'm honoured and very grateful.
