Unquestionably my favourite colours of this year, they never fail to lift my spirits and remind me of Spring and freshness. Coming to fruition during the first lockdown period in April meant these pieces coincided with a burst of yellow flowers in my garden, how fortuitous was that!! I realise more and more my work is like a visual diary, capturing the stories and my life each month in the village, ideas, where they came from, influences or just a mood or feeling, so this is a feeling of optimism for today.... another Spring will always come!
For most of this month there has been a subtle feel to the outdoor colour palette. The sky has not been its usual clear, bright blue....so my hands don't reach automatically for those same colours. Its a Seasonal occurance, along with the natural slowing down that I see all around me, but that doesn't last long in this house.....the colours are calling and so are the scissors, so take a last peek at pale but interesting !!! For now.
