Ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep.

" Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep "

Exert from 'The Kraken' / Tennyson (1830)

Today we went on a glorious visit to the museum. I haven't been for quite a while but I loved it just as much as I always have. I love wandering the floors and looking at butterfly specimens and ogling mummification embalming sheets. My favourite place is the Minerals Room though. I get far too carried away inspecting the amazing rocks and crystals and wishing I had it all as my own private collection.

Malachite reminds me of my paint palettes <3 p="p">

These past month(s) have been relatively steady for me art-wise. I was offered a chance to sneak my work up on the Organic Market walls as a fill in and in that time I managed to sell 4 pieces! It is still very strange to me- this idea of parting with my work. I still maintain a sense of pride and it makes my cheeks redden when I realise people might actually want to have my work hanging up in their houses.

I love the idea that art touches people....that it may connect and inspire. I am so humbled by the fact that this happens with my pieces and am very excited to embark on the journey of creating work now not only for my own pleasure, but in the hopes of enticing people and allowing them to delve into the worlds of my ladies, even if only for a minute.

Journaling and Doodling

My new necklace is just like the patterns I draw with my ladies! Can't wait to be my own human canvas. I like being my art when I wear this. Boom.
