I finished this piece ages ago but I fell out with it so I didn’t put it on my blog. I wasn’t very happy with the colour for a start. I preferred it when it was just black and white. Then I compounded the problem by putting it in an unsuitable frame. I gave up on it just now and took it out of the frame. It was a relief, and, without the frame, the piece doesn’t look so bad. I’ve still put it away though.
I was given an orchid plant for Mother’s Day and it’s just come into bloom again. I’m so pleased – just look at all those buds waiting to open. (You can click on the photos to see them enlarged.)
Every now and then I look through some of the drawings I did when I was a teenager. It usually inspires me to revisit an old idea. Here are some teenage drawings inspired by paisley patterns.
And here is the latest version. I wanted to record it before I added colour. I could ruin it. I’m not so happy with the two largest “cells”; I prefer a couple of my teenage versions. Ho hum. I shall probably revisit this design again.
