Life has been somewhat unsettled of late...massive amounts of tidying and sorting getting my studio and house prepared for Cheltenham Open Studios. I find that this sort of activity mutes my creativity.
So for the last 2 days I have got stuck into the sketch book and allowed myself
to return to images of birds to get warmed up.
Working on pre prepared pages.
It then occurred to me it might be interesting to combine lost relative imagery
with my crows and moths.
Corvid, the bringers of mischief and life for some cultures.
Moths the symbol of death.
I could go on and on.
I am enjoying the playfulness combined with the eerie gothic quality
these images have.
Must add some colour before it all gets too gloomy.
