The Dark Place

I have been struggling a bit just lately......finding myself in that dark place where you just feel like curling up and forgetting the world. Motivation can be hard to find in that place. The only good thing about it is that it passes - you just have to ride it out. I feel it passing now, just as I feel an early Spring coming on. So different from August last year with endless weeks of wet, wet, wet!

I'm managing to stay focused enough to work on projects......just not as much as I probably should, because I always feel better for it. This is "Luna" - a cloth doll with painted, applied lace textures on the head and bodice. She has a lightly stained silk and cotton layered skirt. I really like these colours - a greenish blue with pale ochre and ivory. Subtle complementaries.

I'm also working on a large ferro-cement piece for the West Tamar Sculpture Prize - needs to be completed by the end of September. To be installed at Goaty Hill Vineyard for Artentwine in October. No pictures - keeping it under wraps!
My grand-daughter Leila has just turned 18 - so among the many celebrations she had, we held a family afternoon tea (but with champagne!) Here's a collage;
