The rain falls



Another finished piece. I was making this whilst Open Studios was on. Was good to do something in the quiet times. As I was cutting the frame with my very old jigsaw and then sanding it down by hand I was wishing for some machinery to make things easier. Very hard knotted wood. But as the colours and the grain of the wood slowly showed themselves to me I decided lack of machines is not such a bad thing. Peacefully getting covered in dust instead of going deaf and disturbing the neighbours.

Framed shore crab


Just finished this piece. It was commissioned by some lovely people who visited me in Open Studios week last month.
