I asked for some herbs. I got a huge bunch – basil and several varieties of mint. Yum. But what to do with so much? Eat a bit. And yes, you can lay them flat on grease proof paper and dry them in the oven or you can freeze them for future use.
I guess one could.
I think they were asking to be drawn.
So, here is how this one evolved (over two mornings) – herbs popped into a jug, an initial layer of shapes brushed in, a layer of pen lines and a round floral succulent that had caught my eye in the distance, added in.
The chair? For sitting on. For staying still and from which the act of reflecting and admiring can begin.
And that’s it. Imperfect but done; a thought captured.
