Flying visits

Dont seem to have done much work this week, time has been frittered away on chores and errands. Non-productive necessities I suppose. I am still getting side-tracked along the birds theme.  We have a stone birdbath on the balcony, which was a gift from friends in Dubai, and it attracts neighbouring feathered friends – uncluding minah birds which aredetail from Foreign Species messy devils unfortunately. There’s a one-legged dove that returns, but has trouble perching on the balustrade so it has to slump down on its chest. Quite clever really.

This is a detail from Foreign Species which is going in the forthcoming Fanaan show – only about 2 weeks to go. It’s painted on an old vellum house deed, which is fabulous to work on. I bought a pile of them at a fleamarket in the UK a few years ago, a very good buy as it happens. They seem to be pretty expensive these days. I still miss Casabarata  market in Tangier.
