Quite a week
Rocks piled one on top of the other form this land
Rocks that lie in water
Trees stand proud atop this pile of rocks
Roots work their way down
into that life giving water.
The Artist Way Collective met on Monday.
There are seven of us
each one quite unique
Each one so inspiring
I am so grateful to be one of them.
Then on Wednesday
Three of us drove up the valley
the buy wool and vegetables.
A lovely day out.
On Friday as I couched bits and pieces of my new wool
we received sad news of the passing of my Auntie Rosie.
Roses were added..
and when my cousin suggested I add some rosemary
I made a very weak attempt at doing so.
Rosie was the best Aunt
She will be missed.
On Saturday my friend Chris arrived for a few days play
She always comes with lovely doggie biscuits
for some very excited Rusty Pups!
We played with paint and brush and Gelli Plates and Softoleum.
We sipped wine and feasted on quinoa and asparagus.
On Sunday we learned all about solar plates
and printing presses.
But unfortunately snow cut our day short
and we will have to return to complete the workshop.
A sad but busy week.
