Stories, both mythical and everyday, form a
pathway leading to the creation of artwork.
Here are some postcards from the journey…
Here's an illuminated etching based on a dream I had many years ago, in which I saw a drawing of Blake's with this title.
The sky was filled with flowers, all with their faces turned towards the earth as they drifted down, a potent blessing on the world.
To create the central tree, I took my inked glass and an easel into the meadow on the other side of Rennaldburn and drew the hawthorn there, which has been a wishing tree for a long time.
Here's a little minute-long 'making of' time-lapse:
The etching has been framed with hand-carved wood, gilded with 24-carat gold.
It has a lightbox behind it, is 33cm x 63cm, & is £380 including p&p. You can buy it here :)
