It's four weeks now since we watched the film.
I picked it up in Falmouth Library because I liked the title, knowing nothing of the
history we watched and were transported onto the north Cornish coast.
The film was called. 'The wrecking season' by Nick and Jane Darke.
Since then I've read 'Held by the
Sea' by Jane Darke. If ever there was a book written for someone who
has lost (a strange term but this morning I can't think of a better one) someone they love dearly this is the book to read. Not all of those
crappy bereavement books that people seem to think are the right thing
to give you. This book is the one to read or give to someone who needs it. I wish I had had it 13 years ago,
it would have helped. It has helped.
This wonderful writer is so eloquent in the way
she describes the total isolation that you feel even with your family
We have since watched 'The art of Catching Lobsters' by Jane Darke. With silent tears flowing down our cheeks.

A long last look and a final tweek and I'm done.
Then what to call them, and what price to put on them.. Always a dilemma..
Oh and yes... I did paint over them... In cadmium red!

I've been working on two large canvases this past week, enjoying the challenge and working with one of my favorite subjects... Boats.
But this time they are made of paper.
Not the easiest thing to capture on canvas but all good so far.

Recycled ancient Cornish slate, collected, donated and stolen from skips around Falmouth for this fun recycling project.
I must have looked such an odd character. Come to think of it. Probably no more than usual.
But it was so exciting when I found a piece the perfect shape for an idea running through my head.. It is the little things in life for sure...
