In a mixed mood...

A while back I made three mixed-media pieces
with pages from an old issue of "Never Cry Wolf",
a book by a man named Farley Mowat who lived
among the wolves in Canada in the Sixties,
and blotch-drawing creatures, starting three
more - but never finishing them until now...













I grouped them together as one big picture...

And I made two small folding booklets, with blotch-
drawings on fabric...













They tell stories about a big brown bird and it´s song
in a p-oe-tree...
























And about a relaxed pre-summer day, I guess,
where "there was a stir in the air, and a sense of
expectant gaiety..."














"The right time is ANY time that one is still
so lucky as to have"

(Henry James, born April 15, 1843)
