in which the fish struggles with words
Since I seem to have become utterly devoid of ideas for blogposts I thought I would choose some random images and post them.
This winter seems to stretch onwards, and I am enjoying the consistency and exrtremeness of it. It rains and then it doesn't and then it rains, again. Amazing!
It is the coldest winter for a decade. I love it most of the time, except at work the heating is inadequate, and I often come home with tired shoulders from trying to be warm.
I love the light. So oblique and clear. The sea is so green and icelike. The sky hard and blue.
Here I am painting. Well, here are my charming feet encased in shoes so you cant see the finny bits.
It was said this week that I had been seduced by turquoise and sapphire. This is true, and I am aware of this.
But I cannot attend to my charcoal practice at present, and will stay immersed in blue, even if PhD students feel that I have given myself over to a marketable force.
Tis true, but I feel safe in there, and that's the only place I do feel safe sometimes.
