I’m making a small sculpture out of brown Plasticine. It’s more or less a classical Grecian style woman, or Goddess. Something old, something new. It’s so small that I can’t easily smooth the areas around eyes and mouth. A bigger size next time, I think.
I’m on the theme of Suffolk, still, after visiting one weekend in the summer. It’s where my English family comes from. This is a computer painting based on a vintage photograph, partly scraped away and painted over the top. It’s the kind of place where you’d get cockles and scampi and chips in a pub by the dock, and where the voices would sound something like my grandpa. It’s a very beautiful accent. “Yew oroit bor?”
