just about there with these ones ...





... then onto the next idea!








The more I read and write Rengetsu's poetry, the more calm I feel. It is like a veil being draped over me. It's a beautiful feeling.

Her words are beautiful and calming aren't they? And it looks like you've just gotta love a deadline! It's created some beautiful pieces...when does the exhibit close?

Thank you Kate :-)

Hello Fiona, The exhibition is called EKLEKTIKOS. There are four artists working towards up to ten pieces each. It will be held at a very small gallery in Kingston Beach from 7 to 28 February.

I first came across Rengetsu's work at the National Gallery in an ex called Black Robe, White Mist - that's when I became fascinated with her pottery, poetry, calligraphy and painting. Her work was sublime.

Next year ... I am going solo ... fingers crossed
