The rain it raineth……..

It rained all day until about 15.00 and then the sun came out. Not a single visitor (unless they came after I’d gone home). I can’t sit around all day, and so I went looking for ideas for my next project.

How about these for sculptural forms and colour? Horse chestnuts and a Hawthorn with big orange berries.

First day of Somerset Art Week 2013

First day of art week and it wasn’t raining!

I managed to get some more photos before any visitors arrived.

What I find interesting, is how different this sculpture looks depending on your viewing point/how trees and plants obscure or partially obscure your view. It was very difficult trying to get the best overall position for this work and I kept asking Denise to help me reposition it and then went wandering off into the garden to view it again from all angles. She was very patient with me…..This is when I could have done with a technical team to do the moving….communicating via our mobiles!

The more I look at this work, the more aquatic or possibly prehistoric it becomes……the slightly blurred picture with the Gunnera definitely looks vaguely like a ¬†giant sea-slug, slithering off into the undergrowth, or is this just me?
