Glass bottles

These two bottles were found by my son in the remains of a fire along the line bank. They are pitted and blackened in places but rather lovely nonetheless. I thought this week I would go back to my comfort zone and study the inanimate.


The Naked Muse

Not a day without a line was the motto of rococo artist Jan Anton Garemijn and used as the frontispiece by Kelley Swain in her fabulous book The Naked Muse. She describes her experiences as an artist’s model, muses on life, art, how we  are seen by others and how we see ourselves.

As for the motto, I am choosing to see it as a soft target rather than a rigid discipline. wp-image-2047480543jpg.jpg
