Come join me "upstairs" from the Studio, a place to relax and talk with friends. Here you'll find clips of my stuff, woolgathering about the animals in the family, news about shows and events and links to other sites that I find too good not to mention. Pull up a cushion and have some cake( there should always be cake) and tea, and lets discuss the amazing world of Art in it's many forms!

Poetic thought

Windy Nights
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Whenever the moon and stars are set,
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?

Whenever the trees are crying aloud,
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

Completed Rumplestiltzkin!

 Rumplestiltzkin was completed before deadline and will be listed on Etsy soon. He is about 30" tall, wearing a silver gray tunic with red and gold trim, dark blue leggings, red cap with a peak, and black felt shoes with wooden soles. His hair is thin and wispy greyish wool and he has a straggly little goatee. In his hand he holds an ivory and gold rattle trimmed with small silver bells, intended to entice the Princess's baby, which he is sure will soon be his.

He is a complex little man, definitely a strong presence in the Studio, and I feel he watches every move I make as if wondering what's in it for him...
