green sun poetry

The Green Sun
cotton - 49 x 67cm

Inspired by a poem written by my mother
'The green sun in a black sky..'

also an exercise in 'free' brushwork - no drawing, no real layout..
the text is a bit too disorderly (or not enough) - it doesn't all connect
so - this needs more exploration

experiment in 2005 - just forms

Just forms..2005
on cotton - 45 x 45cm

an experiment in a different style

The last time my parents exhibited in France was in 2005.  I had done this batik then.  I recently found it in a box and finally ironed out the wax.
It jars me now; this 'style'; but for years back then, anything I drew ended up looking like this, so neat!
Each time I scroll down through my own blog, I cringe when I reach this one.  I've even considered removing it altogether, but it's sometimes good to be reminded of what we don't like!

I wanted to try 'big' motifs. I'm going to redo this one - need to work more on the colours.
