We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Lagging Behind

This morning I saw that Magie had posted her third voyage piece- and delightful it is- and I also have some of that stripey fabric in my stash - bought from Magie of course. But it made me feel very guilty. I am well aware I have been lagging behind, and have been going through a bit of a malaise of inspiration of any sort. So this morning I got up- and yay behold- second day of sunshine in a row- not a spot of rain to be seen. It's amazing what a bit of sunshine does to the spirit. As our  topics include where I am , where I have been I decided to  look at my work and really no collection of my work  would be complete without something pomegranate.  I simply love the fruit of the pomegranate, it's shape, it's colour and  it's taste, and all the mythical stories associated with the fruit and in particular that of Persephone- and  in 2010 when I lived in France there was a lovely pomegranate tree in the garden ( which I often photographed). So here is my second piece- simply pomegranate tree- I am hoping it will kickstart a spurt of creativity!!


  1. I love pomegranates too and we have a tree in our French garden,as you did.I really like the colours you have used and I can see lots of luscious quilting as well. Your creative muse will surely return;just keep working. Not everything has to be a masterpiece!. I have sent you a message by E-mail as well as this.

  2. Well done Dijanne. You do have a great way with Pomegranetes! Yes, I hope it does kick start you back on track. M
