The Plots

the plots
My ideas and influences come from so many different directions.

the plots no. 2
Sometimes they are right next door.

the plots no. 3
I live next to a little churchyard. There are four rows of tiny graves dating from the 1800's.

the plots no. 4
They sit neatly under huge pine trees where a flock of vultures roost every winter.

the plots no. 5
I have started to wonder about my quiet neighbors, imagining their stories.

the plots no. 6
I'm thinking of making their portraits.

Kathi, Thank you for your encouragement. I have a few projects to finish before I fully delve in, however it's fun getting started on something new.

Absolutely love this idea Holly! And I agree with the others, your beautiful beautiful musings are inspiring (so gently brushed with feathers) - haven't used a nib & ink for ages, so I'm thinking it's well and truly time!

Helen: A quill nib and black ink makes handwriting a little more special and a lot prettier too! Give it a go!
