Creativity

reality is – its your own

expression – you can do it through

a range of forms – music, dance, photography, or art

the choice is really down to you

if you want to make something – do it

versatility is the name of the game

indeed, what you make could be read, listened to, watched or eaten

there’s a host of things you could do to showcase your talent

you never know, if you don’t give it a try

What’s Awesome?

#Fowc #Awesome

Salford 4th June 2019

If this reads a bit like a list – It’s not supposed to be!

Rainbow list of all my stuff that makes my life awesome!

Things I’ve done, Places I’ve seen

Being a cog as part of a much larger machine

Taking up writing as self – therapy

Helping out run some great events for free

#Freedomofexpression #Art

A response to the latest challenge from Iscriblrs Freedom of expression series

(and yes – I will be getting arty with his one!)

A Garden image with red and blue flowers.  Sandstone Sundial at its heart.
A piece of Acetate Art by Inky – “Garden (Sundial)

A pencil and paper – the start of the process

Composing where the individual flowers went

Encapsulating the sandstone sundial at its heart

Transferred to hardened plastic

And painted in translucent paint

The final result ? A stained window without glass –

Exceptional

#CFFC #Patterns

Zigzag Patterns , Mediacity , Salford

I like patterns

you can find them all around you,

whether its in nature , or in your home furnishings

in a mural or a picture

I Volunteer at Imperial War Museum North, in Manchester, and a key place you spot patterns are in the camouflaged objects around the exhibition space


Most camouflage patterns are inspired by Nature. I was lucky enough to capture a picture of this lizard while he was standing still – out in the distance his patterned skin would have blended into the tree, as if he was part of it….Great for hide and seek.


Mother nature’s rather good with patterns as well, together with jack frost. This pic was taken in the winter season, and although it seems random, there’s a definite structure and pattern to the way the crystals of frost have formed on the car roof.

Masterpiece ii

Acrostic, Cooking, Food, Poetry

Masterpiece 

Made from the finest beef

And vegetables fresh from the north of england

Something stupendous has been prepared

Transforming the ingredients into something that

Excites the tastebuds, as meat and potato dance

Round the pan with carrots and leeks

Pepper, salt and herbs

In a tango to 

Excite the senses

Coming together on the plate…a dish

Everyone will enjoy

IWM North, Manchester 17th November 2018

From time to Mother nature has been at the

Implanted ceramics by the canalside

X-tra ceramic poppies have had to be brought in

Even barriers – and broken ones have to be sent to the poppy hospital

Damage repaired with Slip and Glue (and more red paint)
