Here we are, just after midsummer, pouring with rain, grey and not at all jolly, especially as it is a day we had planned a little outing. Well, it will go ahead but be somewhat damp, wellies needed, etc. However, the garden was looking parched, so at least we can trot out that useful phrase, ‘the garden needs it’. Let’s just hope we don’t have to say it too often.
Another plus is that dull weather is ideal for work. I have started a new piece which I will be continuing to construct later; in fine weather I find it tedious to stay inside, not that I’m into sitting in the sun, completely the opposite in fact. I would like to work outside, so I think I need a gazebo, one of those tenty ones would be fine. Perhaps I could make a gazebo, now there’s a project.
So here, on this grey day, are a few of the finished pages from Shadow and Light, my latest artist’s book. I’ve chosen the summery ones, and at some point soon I will put more images into Gallery 2, too. The last 6 images are double page spreads.
