Woodland magic...............





It is easy to sit and to draw, it doesn't hurt my arm.... I made the above drawings and painting sat quietly in the wood near my home, to pull the forest around you, a mantle of leaves, with a mossy bough for your feet.  I sit and listen to the rustle of drying leaves and golden grasses...She comes then fleeting and light..... feral and wild ...she is my forgotten voice and I want to run through the forest with her..but she is too fast and not of this world...so I draw her instead and when I look down there is a feather from her hair in my lap...............
with love...................

Dreams in flight.............






I thought butterflies against my window.....soft wings that will whisper summer all through the Winter...lifting me up into the blue sky...trailing autumn leaves and sparkling frosts and the rain can fall and spatter and splash onto my window and I will be warm and safe within their wings...........

Playing with brushes...............


My painting........
  Woodland walking..........Autumn is in the air..the crows are whispering messages in the dew laden mornings..I cannot sleep at night and I leave footprints in the morning dew dusky in the pink dawn.
 The Goddess is here dusting the air with gold and watching me draw with my palette of northern colours, I  ask for her help to guide my hand..to let me sleep, to heal my body, to make me better..and the crows fly away with my wishes across the golden corn and over the mermaids in the water.................

Pages of inspiration........





A beautiful French poetry book dated 1950 just sat on the shelf of my local Charity shop......now takes pride of place on my table...the drawings are so beautiful,  the artists  are  Jose et Jean-Marie Granier.

A bit early but thinking of Christmas...............

Jessie Chorleys gorgeous drawings

Jessie and Buddugs Shop on the Columbia Road

I'm so glad to be talking to you all my dear blog friends..I have been so poorly for so many weeks unable to really do much and not really able to craft or use my computer so I am so sorry if I have not written and have lost touch with you....... I hope I can start to post a little more often and visit your beautiful blogs  too......
My lovely Mom has treated me to a Christmas  workshop November 12th  with one of my favourite designers Jessie Chorley take a look at her gorgeous and amazing work (  blog link to Jessie and Buddugs Shop is in my picture list at the side of my page)  so I have something wonderful to aim for, and I will have lots of nice things to make for Christmas.
.I know how it seems a long time away...but the crows are starting to chatter in the dusky green leaves of late summer and somehow  the magic of the year moves on, trickling through my fingers like a cool stream on a summers day...............
May I toast you all with a piece of chocolate cake and a nice cup of tea xxxxxxx
