|I bought this big zinc basin a while ago. Yesterday it thawed out so I quickly emptied it before it deforms in the next freeze. The gas froze too.|
|As we all seem to be, I am hugely affected by light. At the first peep or flicker of sunshine I start moving about the place with my camera recording any strong light and the way the light transforms everything. I live mostly in the verandah in winter and early mornings can be a bit difficult for me.The little wood stove pumps around some warmth quite quickly thankfully. Here I am looking through a piece of crystal glass with the lens at the garden.I might try a bit more of this using impromptu lenses. I'd love to do some of those photos using a vintage camera TTV|
that gives images a dirty lens and a border.
|This is the subject of my current painting.|
|Not sure where to put the plants. The nights plummeted down to -9° so they all got moved away from the window ledges. The kitchen has this big pillar in the middle similar to the beams they use in mills here to pulley up flour.|
|I don't normally photograph rain. The Christmas lights are up in Luzy but it's still hard to be cheerful.|
|Goosey waiting by the backdoor.|
|I painted the kitchen cupboard doors last night to go with the verandah, I think maybe circus, gypsy or even Italian insired by the Romans and a bit French too. Not bad.|
