Time flies

wow, cant believe its almost November, been awhile since I posted, life has just been full……………….Where does all the time go, it seems to be racing past at the moment, although I have gained an hour in my day today as the clocks changed today.

Have been away in a very tranquil setting in Suffolk, bliss is the word I would use describe it.  This proud fella woke me up every morning at 6.30am.  Why is it they rise and “cock a doodle do” everyday without fail?  You would think they might have a few off days?   His name is Neville by the way !

 

 

New pastels

trying out  new pastels, didnt like this medium before but in this new style pallete of colours instead of “sticks” is a very different feel.  so been playing

 

The Heart Tree

continuing with my heart series , dont know quite where this is all going but the heart seems to me like a tree, a tree of life.  Where would life be without a man and a woman? The life force, the blood pumping through heart, our viens, the veins and arteries forming tree like structures within ,just as outside, like mighty oaks, roots deep in the soil and branches reaching up into the cosmos.  The macrocosm and the microcosm

Heart growth

Recently I had an angiogram at the new local hospital, seeing my heart on the screen I hadnt realised that the arteries looked like the branches of a tree.  Thankfully the consultant told me ‘GOOD NEWS” so very relieved, but it all this got me thinking and researching and being creative.

We are literally just like a tree inside, the heart is our tree of life, and its something I just cannot stop drawing.  I started drawing a “heart” before I went to the hospital, it helped me to understand what was going on but then I wanted to draw a happy, supported and nurtured heart, one that thinks, is full of love and is abundant in all ways.

This is my latest offering.
