In the Making : Artwork for Breadcrumbs

Amidst boxes and bubblewrap and visits to the solicitor to sign more forms and daily trips to Son the Younger's place of work to get more boxes and phone calls to removal firms and the Co-operative Insurance people and boxes and more bloody boxes, something exciting is growing.

Mindful of the need to draw a line between woman and tree, tree and woman, being lost in the forest and being the forest, Dru Marland picks up her pencil and brushes to create the artwork for my third poetry collection, Breadcrumbs, which will be published by Indigo Dreams in 2016 ...

A bit too suggestive?
Starting to take root now ...

Battered and boughed ...

Slow work, all them leaves ... 

Nearly there now ...

Myrrha ... Bella in the Wych-Elm ... Raggy Liddy
