Snow is falling

Everything is clean and fresh this week. 5.30am saw the start of snow falling everywhere. So unusual to have inches of the white stuff, enough to roll into a big ball and yes everyone has gone snow man barmy! Every street corner has its own chap, a new crew to hang out with…! The fun […]

Oranges are the only fruit

Looking for an object to fill me with inspiration I walk around (and around) a local covered market and follow the scent of oranges and bright posters to a local museum to see how an object can be used as Art. ‘I’m having Art for lunch’ says a visitor as another orange is taken from […]

Silent hands make light work

Watching the late Hans Josephson work in his studio silently places the mind into a blissful state of quiet.  His work is contained in the Swiss La Congiunta museum, in Giornico, which is devoted to his work.  The film that records his studio work offers admirable meditation from a life that has gracefully dealt with […]
