Visitors thought they might be fungi. They took over a year to disappear. Artist in the garden . Broomhill
Leaves sewn with grass Broomhill. After the About the land exhibition it seemed fitting to float them on the lake at Broomhill rather than keep them in my studio.
yellow leaves arranged on the lake. I made 52 of them ,we still found some of them floating for a few weeks after whilst watching the tadpoles.
I was drinking tea up the beach and noticed a couple discovering my arrangement . They were considering whether or not they could be a natural formation. After a while I did come clean. They laughed and I enjoyed the moment.
The beginning of autumn It was so peaceful. I collected the bright leaves as they were floating all around me. Couldn't resist arranging them .The green of the moss enhanced the brightness. They blew away on the breeze.
The pebbles can be so graphic. I like to connect up the lines . On this beach ,Blackpool Mill I had previously (to my delight ) discovered tiny rivulets on the rocks carrying bright sediment . I collected it over several visits ...and to day was the day! I brought my treasure and a paint brush. Fantastic!
