My little soldiers

Plodding, plodding, plodding away. The 'business' end (as they say on Masterchef) when we frame and document and moreover cull and DECIDE....or is that decode? I've just poured a wine and I'm tired!

In a bid to 'get ahead', I prepared lots of meals on Monday night but somehow I'm still in the kitchen for too long every single night! Usually I LOVE being creative with my palette of spices and potions but at this juncture would much rather be in the studio. Judging by this vignette, I am not alone in my sentiment, although I would have a empty G&T glass in one hand.

Talking of bananas....

Davy Jones passed away last week and that made me unexpectedly pensive. My brother and I grew up with The Monkees, Robinson Crusoe (French version for TV 1964) and The Banana Splits on a Saturday morning. Happy Days! So rather than mourn and post Daydream Believer, lets celebrate with The Banana Splits....and a little bit of nostalgia from Robinson Crusoe.
RIP Davy Jones

Bananas and Butterflies

Just about sums it's bananas here and I'm making more butterflies. Well that's the kind of thing you do with a week to decide that you NEED an injection of colour on the form of kaleidoscopic butterflies. It will be fine..........just prepare the red cabbage dye, truss up some stunning silk, recycled from cast off voila...butterflies.
Nobody mention the framing, stitching, stretching and embellishing in the studio. it's all under control up here in the kitchen with a vat of dye and some wet silk!

Pulling it Together

The studio and gallery space are filling up with pieces for Burrinja. It's very intoxicating and it's still raining so I'll be locked in this world all day (yipee!) With so many and so varied pieces growing, I am never short of creative mental stimulation or moreover....stuff to finish!
