Springs are interesting little objects.  When expanded they’re not of much use.  But when compressed they contain incredible energy and power.  What is in you waiting to spring into life or spring into action?

    the next stage of a painting ( currently a large canvas, 80 x 100, annapurna), just waiting for the first coat to dry/
    the first bits of seed sowing and ground preparation, bulbs are peeping through the soil, birds are gathering nesting material/
    thanks for this simple looking, but complicated drawing, and the ‘ awakening’ in the question

      Can’t wait to see it when its done Liz. Are you going to be posting progress updates? Thanks for taking time to reflect and share. Your thoughtful comments are always so encouraging.

        went in to have a look at it this afternoon, nearly dry, so should be able to paint another layer tomorrow, if so I”ll post a pic, then we”ll see how it goes, sometimes it all goes wrong and I”ll scrape it down, not sure if I would publicize that !
        I really look forward to your posts too, as your name indicates, you simply go to the core of things sometimes, your work is so different from mine and yet I believe we express some similar ‘truths’through our art

        Liz your work caught my eye from the moment I saw it. Your encouragement is, to this fledgling artist, greatly valued. I agree that we both seem to be working to convey simple, clear truths through our work. Can’t wait to see your new work emerging this year!
