Gestation

Drawing connections
I have had a nest egg image in my mind for months since I came across Francis Orpen Morris’ work through the wonderful Tiny Aviary blog. Morris painted as an ornithologist naturalist in the 1800’s. For me it symbolises the gestation of an idea and the time and focus that needs to acccompany it. Like the thinness of the shell, so too is the fagility of many ideas.

Imperfect lines – even so, I had to be so still to paint them so close together. This style has been inspired by the meditative quality of the work of Olivia Jeffries.

Another perfect autumn day for us to enjoy!
