Coming up to a year since our first lockdown and over a year since I met with friends, visited another town, or went to a shop, I’m painting pebbles again. Last year, I made them to brighten up the lane for people passing by, and for them to take home if they wanted to. I put up bunting through the branches of one of my trees and strung it across my path. That’s still there – or a third version of it is – along with some solar lights that were of very little use in the winter but are coming into their own now there’s some actual sol.
Now I’m painting more pebbles; bright green and yellow with gold sweeps and ‘filigree’ on the top surface to bring in the spring.
I’ve been on my own there in MoMAland but someone popped in to say hello yesterday evening. No more drawings though so my claim to a one-person MoMA exhibition must surely be in the bag.
