Signs and Sigels

Signs and Sigels is the title for the ‘Notebook‘ (part 1) I am currently working on, inspired by my St. Michael’s Way walk back in July, The Adventure Starts Here.  I have submitted it for The Newlyn / Exchange Collective Exhibition by artist volunteers at the Newlyn Gallery, even though it is still a work…

Getting Lost in a ‘Labyrinth of Solitude’

The other evening whilst I was sitting quietly in a circle with friends (see entry for 19th September), into my head popped the image of a labyrinth.  The strange thing is, it was imprinted onto the right side of my forehead and this seemed to be important for some reason.  With it came a long…

The christening gown that Rebecca is wearing was made by my mother-in-law, Jean.  3 generations later, the same christening gown is worn by baby Rose for her christening.   Here she is…

Free Spirits

The following extract is part of an email sent to me this week by a dear friend.  It describes a dream she had.  I have added a painting I did last November that I thought was appropriate.  It is so wonderful when things like this happen out of the blue, and it arrived just after…
