Orchids - drawing a day 2011



Orchid roots

Started a Facebook page with an album of drawings called Sarah McCartney drawing a day 2011
Good to be drawing and painting as I am not in the garage so much at the moment it being colder and the days shorter - and ran I out of resin.









But yesterday I got in some supplies and have been out there all day tidying and sorting so I can get a good day in tomorrow.
Will be casting and sanding down lots of these little round things for a piece I have planned. Maybe it will be the first one to be lit from the inside?

who die



who die
the silence is
unbearable 
but  slowly
piece by piece
layer by layer
they become
histories
journeys
memories
questions
prayers
and always
the One thing
I work and it is good

cooking with copper




don't loose it 

Have recently ordered a load of chemicals to patinate copper different colours. At the moment I only have ammonia and a mysterious white powder that together make a lovely turquoise, blue. I used it on the copper framing this piece. But I'd like to get some greens and recreate the gorgeous red I managed to make happen somehow on the piece called 'column'. I think I used plant fertilizer but have never been able to recreate it again. Found some recipes on the web so I'll be cooking with copper soon!
