memory lane

earlier this week i attempted to replicate one of my favourite photos in acrylic on canvas (attempted being the operative word - the result was disastrous, to my eyes anyway). nonetheless, i've fallen in love with this image all over again.

it was taken at a point when i was bedridden and spending lots of time looking up at a little shelf on the wall. i was so drawn in by the beauty and colours of the petals and blossoms floating in a blue bowl sitting on that shelf that i had to preserve it on film (yes, a long time ago, before the advent of digital). all these years later it still brings me the same sense of wonder and pleasure to gaze into its
vivid colours and abstract forms.
