Okay so it's not quite what I promised you on my last post but...
Today has been a beautiful day here in Wensleydale. Blue sky, sunshine, fluffy clouds, aaaah, all is good.
It is freezing though, literally. I been forbidden from leaving the house until the ice melts as I'm one of those people who can slip at the drop of a hat. Yup! There may only be a 2 inch square of ice on the ground but I'll find it! Today we have considerably more than a 2 inch square. It makes me wonder how those poor people down South will fare if all that flood water starts to freeze! My heart goes out to them.
Anyway as I was saying, it's a beautiful day here in the Dales today and a little bit of sunshine gave me enough daylight to photograph my latest, or should I say my first piece of felt this year. So I thought I'd share it with you before it goes down to the gallery.
Here he is! You won't believe how hard it was for me to start this piece of felt.
I really struggled with the 'blank piece of paper syndrome' or felt, in my case! It's silly really but I think I was frightened of failure. I was frightened that I couldn't do 'it' anymore, lol. I feel embarrassed telling you actually, teehee.
Once I've got a good dollop of fibres laid out I'm okay. Once I've got that feeling, that essence of hare, I'm good, I can go with it, enjoying the ride.
When I used to draw pencil portraits (many moons ago) I knew if I had the eyes right, the rest would be fine.
My mum always said I liked a challenge! lol!
(just noticed a very clear refection of my hands holding the camera right in the middle of my hare, tut tut.)
Till next time when we shall endeavour to reconnect with my previous post.
Love Fi x
Oh NO! I've just heard on the radio that we're in for a large dollop of snow here in the hills tomorrow
