Rose Tinted World
A rose tinted world stitched in the secret garden, a glorious afternoon spent listening in to life. A squirrel rummaging in the bin, airplanes coursing , parakeets squawking, a squabble of crows swooped in . Then calls and cries of children from the nearby paddling pool echoed all around, zoo like, alongside murmurs of hushedContinue reading “Rose Tinted World”

I drew a grid with stepped lines, creating a ‘wall’ which was filled with a looseContinue reading “Message from The Universe – Part 2”
