This week has been no less disruptive than last week. A further string of unpredictable and unusual events of "what are the chances" nature cropped up.
These drawings were what came out of it, though.
4 great things this week:
- 6 views of a dried up chestnut, trying to work out how the first root and sprout come out of the kernel
- a peony tree fruit exposed after its petals fell
- what was inside the dried up chestnut when I picked off the shell
- a small, gnarly apple tree in the garden.
I am obsessed with irises in the garden at the moment: buds transforming into baroque beauty, and the weirdness of the tubers which tirelessly sprout these miracles at the end of each winter. When I draw I like to try and understand how it all works. Similarly, I enjoyed drawing a bunch of rusty old keys I found, exploring how the keys were made and imagining their action.
The sun is shining, so I am going into the garden again!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
