it's been a while...

It's been a while since I blogged. But things are happening behind the scenes (slowly). To get back into the spirit of things, and clear out my smart phone 'notes', here is the work of some names I jotted down from the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013. Roy Eastland's silverpoint drawing portraits were of obvious interest and beauty to me. And my favourite, dance wallpaper by aideen cusack-leggett

Eveline van Dalen

A few years back I met the lovely Eveline... As well as some wonderful conversations I got to watch her quietly sit and draw. What a talented lady. Nip over and have a look at her beautiful, fun and quirky work. I love the bumble bee!

Brooke Sharkey

A few weeks ago we heard the wonderful Brooke Sharkey and her band at Carters. What a stunning voice and gorgeous music! She has a number of videos online or you can hear her here. These above have been keeping me company during long hours in the library! Thank you!
