From Ellie's Hand

Work in progress

I am currently working on a wall hanging.  I am working freeform crochet onto a framework of withies and with a hessian backdrop.  I will be posting more details as it progresses.

Wherever I go I am intrigued by patterns and textures.  Last Autumn I took a leisurely walk with a friend round Cauldshiels Loch near Galashiels.  It was a dreich grey day.  Wet and still.  Yet the cool quiet atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing and refreshing.  Colours everywhere sang and shone in the wet.

Afterwards  I returned to this wonderful atmospheric feeling and worked on capturing some of that vibrant,stripped-away stillness on canvas.   Here is one of them in various stages of its emergence.
