beautiful and mysterious collage by Ellie,
@ Creativity Summer School, circa 2004

raiders of the lost archive
presently working with children (7-9year olds)
our course is called Sketch Club – really seeing
observation, looking, sketching – using pencil & no erasers
they’re wonderful to work with and totally focused
here’s some of their work
after a non-dominant-hand warm-up exercise

date stamper                             cabbage leaf                                   metal sharpener

this has reactivated my drawing practise: thankfully seems my eye is still ‘in’,
guess years of practising really looking and seeing has consequences

and from the archive, an old love, playing around digitally. . .


a touching quote from Thich Nhat Hahn
who gently says to ask oneself:
Have I learned to produce feelings of joy and
happiness whenever I want?

thank you for visiting

    Dearest Lills, the beautiful totem figures are wonderful and you have inspired me to make a few to hide and disintegrate into the yarden . . . . Always, David XXX
