tonight’s dinner was a real feast to the eye, so much so that I just had to take a photo !! It tasted just as good as it looked, with shaved beetroot, apple, carrot, cucumber and courgette with mustard and lemon vinaigrette and after the photo I added toasted cashews. For me to enjoy my food it has to look nice too, I eat with my eyes…………. I have been growing courgettes and french bean in huge pots outside my office, pleasantly surprised at how prolific these have been.
orange, many happy memories of living, creating with this wonderful colour

Its official, an image of my PAPERCUT GARDEN is going to blown up huge and used as a backdrop in 7 Jewellry stores in London…………….. Due to be installed on Valentines Day
beetroot , my favourite vegetable not only for the taste but mainly for the superb rich colours. For me eating is not just about taste, it’s about EATING WITH YOUR EYES
think too these colours would make a wonderfully rich woollen quilt !
Oh how I love the seasons, so much to look forward to, flickering fires, wrapped up in winter wools and scarves, walks among the colourful autumn leaves, the riot of rich autumnal colours. Just look at these gorgeous rose hips
Its always nice to share others creative journeys……….. Yao a dear friend has just put together a website for his wonderful photography. An Artist who “paints” with his lens, instead of a set of brushes. take a peek http://www.yao-photography.co.uk/
I came across the site Retronaut this morning, courtesy of Remodelista. It’s an amazing site…………… and came across the following.
Completely enthralled by the concept of the Victorian practice of the “invisible mother” I realise it was set up this way so that the babies and children were able to be supported through the long exposure times. HOwever I couldn’t help thinking of the mother, it’s just bizarre to be there so obviously, but “hidden” under a cloth. What is this saying about how the photographer, most likely male, is seeing the role of a woman in Victorian society? Seems like it didn’t count for much…………….

Amazing what a walk in the woods can reveal, a triumphal arch, a gothic window, wildwood tracery in a stain glass window……………….
I see this as a wondrous tree spirit, both masculine and feminine, wise, loving and full of playfulness. How did I do this? it started of as two image, one, a picture of a very ancient tree and two, a pencil sketch that I drew yesterday of the sacred serpent entwining itself around a spirit body. Today I played around with them digitally and had some fun, and this is the result. My day started very early, up and awake at 5am. Creative juices were flowing and I just had to act on them……….. you know how it is !!
Inspirations from the sea, Bladderack frond found on the beach here over the weekend and photographed by moi! This little frond inspired me to create something more, just liked the movement and shape.
