Looking for inspiration

Re reading this book, looking for inspiration. Something to get my brain in gear. Have got stuck.

Lines. I have been busy again this week and only managing to visit The Studio for small periods of time. Really need to be in it a whole day to crack Lines. Feel I am snatching an hour here and there and as a result repeating exercises, not moving on.

Have gone back to look at the stones I picked up from the beach on Arran. ( A good ideas, says Creative Fairy)

These are drawn in a A2 sketchbook. Larger scale than last week.  Kalamkari will be exhibition at Aberlady in 2018 so will try to develop the stones. Still looking for inspiration. ( Creative Fairy has gone on Holiday I think)

Tissue paper glued on. Texture.  Could these lines in the stones be openings? Openings to show what.?
Time to start a fabric sample.

Vegetable plot is my delight. I cant wait to pick the beans and harvest the potatoes. Ok I know it is small.

 The act of growing my own vegetables and picking them fresh is important to me but as family and friends point out I have shops minutes away selling perfectly good produce. Indulge me.

Early potatoes in a pot. Hope they are not all foliage
and nothing underneath. My tomatoes are thriving

Please look in next week ( to hear if Creative Fairy has come back)
Openings, a whole new line of inquiry.
BYE      BYE


  1. Yes, I'll be interested to see what you make of lines and openings, I'm sure you will suddenly find something. Maybe it has to be lines and an additional theme?
    Your plants look wonderfully healthy.

  2. What an insteresting book and I love your samples so far!
    Your mini garden and all the pots are super! You are so right to do it.
    Happy harvest !
