I  meant to show you something else this week, I’ve been working on a little painting of  Ginger and the wormy apple tree,  but on Monday night I dreamed of another place – the brook. The dream left me with such a particular sensation I wanted to try to express it. The brook had a distinctive feature, what seemed to be a magic ability that I’d like to show you another time but  Monday’s dream was of  a grey and stormy day and the water surging and tumbling and  swirling through the tunnel under our street  and rising terrifyingly up  the steep grassy banks.


  1. Wow! This one is very different than the other A lot of action and movement. So much to read into. Absolutely beautiful. Looking forward to more!

  2. i am making papier mache boats using your instructions, and thought i’d have a look at what else you do. This painting is really very good, marvelous.
