Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.

Blossoms and Possum

I've spent the last three mornings, early and before it gets too hot, sitting out in the garden with my ailing geriatric hound, drawing the plants I've nurtured: this is the first garden in which I've ever been an active participant of planting and tending. We inherited some mature fruit trees: two apples and a plum. Most of the blossoms are turning now and dropping, though the plum tree still puts on a rich show of blowsy blooms: I had a real sense of carpe diem all round.

Ruth, deixa-me levar estas flores, as últimas, para ilustrar a Primavera, de as minhas Estações do Ano?

Claro! Com prazer... vão cair muito em breve.... !

Estou aqui com uma dúvida existencial. Será que os meus gostos estão a mudar? ou são estes desenhos que são muito bonitos?

As Estações do Ano said...

Eu acho que são ambas as coisas.

E antes que as flores desapareçam, resolvi vir buscar o outro ramo.
