all seems well again…comments are enabled!
My excuse at the time was that my camera was “not up to it.” More pertinently, my photographic skills were not up to it! Come on, guys! I couldn’t compete with some of the stunning images that so many of you post! Even the revelations of WW’s closet and pantry left me on the starting blocks. (And I can’t bear to think of my office in comparison with that of Ces!)
Then, the new camera came into my life. Of course, I’m still on training wheels, but the beauty of digital technology is that the rubbish can be so quickly and so simply garbaged. Yay! For digi-cams!
Another difficulty for me is that this house has so many windows just about every photo has multiple reflections. The easy way, I suppose, would be to photgraph every picture, one at a time, from the same hook, with doors closed and lights off. Or not.
So…here is a selection of some of the artwork that we like to look at, arrived at by means of comical and sometimes painful gymnastic contortions.
No prizes for knowing this one! A poster, laminated years ago, this was the first thing I unpacked on moving day.Oh, alright…it’s Durer’s “Young Field Hare.” See the date? 1502.
This is a collage, made by my friend and lino teacher, Heather Walker. The local group of printmakers have a “Secret Santa Claus” gift exchange at our Christmas party and I drew this from Santa’s sack. (I do have more of her work, but that will be for another day…)
