Under Water?

Maybe a kind of "under water fantasy"?? The background fabric is handdyed cotton and I've used silk fibres of different kind for decoration - also wire, beads and painted and heat distressed Tyvek. Size 8 x 10".

Marocco

I've just spent a week in Marocco, an "ego-trip" - days with culture, museums, hammam, massage, shopping, garden visits, walking, walking, walking, and as always when I'm on holiday, lots of good food and wine. This time I also made some of the food myself - on a cookery course where I learned to make Maroccoan salads, bread and a chicken tagine. How fun was that!!?
Yves Saint Laurent had a beautiful house and garden in Marrakesh - well worth a visit. This is the address:
Shelves and shelves with powder for yarn and fabric dyeing. I didn't buy any, but I bought lot of spices!!


Once again, most of my holiday photos show doors..... These are from a harem in Marrakesh





The area where I live is famous for the local rose painting - I think the old painters got their inspiration from other parts of the world.....
