Bushfire


I am doing some textile stuff on Hole Moley run by Dale Rollerson of The Thread Studio and at the moment we are doing layers, her latest bit got me thinking so I did this preliminary paining to see if it would translate I think it will.
I loved this bit and I am dying to get on with working it through but there is never enough time in the day and other things to do first.
But then maybe I can sneak in some time somewhere.
Cooler but still sticky, we didnt get the promised rain, just what looked like it but nothing on the ground.
Hoses on again.
Just because I like it here is this Haiku by Basho.
A cuckoo calls
and suddenly...
The bamboo grove
lighted by moonbeams.

Fire can be beautiful and deadly. Over in Victoria this weekend they are having plenty of remembrances for the devastation a year ago. Nature returns gradually but for humans after tragedy it is a longer process I think. But out of it all comes compassion and courage.
