I find the garden an extraordinary miracle and I know that I will miss its comfort and beauty but I will really miss the fruit trees. The persimmons are coming outThey hang like golden baubles in the autumn, the leaves go a beautiful red and then abandon the fruit to its short time hanging like little presents waiting to be picked.
In every change there are the moments that will not be recaptured.
This is my house taken from outside and it just makes me want to go in.
I signed for my new house yesterday and talked to the lass who was selling and she is lovely and says the neighbours are really great and she can't wait to introduce me to them which reinforces my feelings about the decision.
One of the difficulties at the moment is that I am so weary, moving furniture and .....tidying......dusting......for the real estate photographer, who may come tomorrow, and I have not done any of my art. We have 2 challenges to complete in a couple of weeks "Fungi" is the 5 letter word and we are beginning a book and my topic is "Spirit"(I don't know what I was thinking)!
I will have to learn from others how to focus when I do work...Ro???? Some of you manage so much in your life and still make art..amazing.Here are some preliminary doddles of ideas.
I have just discovered Ben Nicholson so I was trying out drawing a still life and not taking the pen off the paper, this was the first and up in the corner a few more "Doodles" of fungi....I tend to write on whatever is near.
How about this as my challenge!!!!!???
