Wish You Were Here

I wish I had a better picture of this. When I left university a loooong time ago I started writing a novel. As part of the process I occasionally created pictures like this that depicted something that I had written into the story. It is a mixture of collage, sketch and watercolours. Even now I still like this little piece even though the novel has long since been abandoned!

Stand Your Ground

This is a cross stitch I did based on one of my own photographs of electrical pylons, taken in Zambia. I really like pylons, the rigid shapes I think are beautiful. The original intention was to complete it but then as I progressed, I realized that I liked the empty spaces and how the pylons are there but look like they have been ripped out.
It's a small piece so the impact is not great when you see it. I also need to find a decent frame.
