Mythical Creatures Exhibition with 'Girls Who Draw'

I've been working on this 'Firebird' drawing today. It's for an exhibition at 'Here' gallery in Bristol. They have kindly agreed to host the 'Girls Who Draw' and our Mythical Creatures show.
The show opens on February 9th- hope I get time to do a centaur before then as well!

Winter Walks

Snow has visited Birmingham, and decided to stick around for a while. What a treat.
I know lots of folk find it bothersome, and inconvenient, but I love it. I love mucking around in it, watching it fall, looking at the shapes it forms, and watching how it affects everything it touches.

The last couple of days I have spent the mornings walking with Stan. Out to Highbury Park, and further to Holders' Wood. These Daphne (?) blossom looked beautiful with their icy covering.

It's been a quiet time since December. Christmas felt like being trampled by a herd of elephants, and I've been happy to potter in the studio and make plans for the coming year. There are a few prints in production, and several irons in the fire.

I even got the seed box out this morning. Sowing to commence on Saturday.
