More light is beginning to filter into the days here but the greyness and dormancy of this time of year is something of a struggle.
I'm working on some new pieces, continuing with themes begun for this exhibition last year. The colours are more muted - the season dictates this - my local sources of colour are limited by this part of the growing year. I am enjoying the way the dyes travel through the wool I am using. Pieces are left to absorb colour for several days, and I find time each morning to go down to the studio to check on their progress and to maybe sadden the colour with a solution of oak galls and iron.
