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.
