Still doodling away in my old sketchbook. Both of these drawings are a direct response to a beautiful picture in Judy Dyble's house. I love the way horses do this, resting their heads in trust on each other.

Today has been otherwise, sunshine and doctors, butterflies and rose, painkillers and sleep. I almost walked away from what I hope will be an amazing project as they hit me sideways with an idea that I just could not sign up to, but thankfully have moved on from there now, so I hang in there and wait and imagine and dream, and meanwhile draw. And the pressure is off for a little now. I can loose myself in paintings and preparing for an exhibition in Long Melford in September and Nursery Rhyme chaos and cat book roughs.


  1. I love it when animals rest their heads on one another too, there's something so warm and magical about it.

  2. What a wonderful image! I immediately thought of it sculpted in white stone, with an archway under their necks that led to someplace wonderful. I love the courser shape - the wolfhounds and greyhounds and whippets. They even stand still rapidly! I'm sorry your day involved doctors and painkillers. Hope the need for both goes away quickly.

  3. Awww, what a sweet image!


  4. This is so beautiful, it is wonderful to witness these moments. I really admire your skill at capturing them in your art.
