    Your ivory ruler is a real treasure, Mo, and very beautiful. I love using the old drawing tools my Dad used in his school days, 90 years ago. Postcard has some very lovely and poignant features, I’m so keen to see the finished drawing.

      the drawing is going it’s own way now & it’s been quite intense getting it to this point… I’m keen to see where it takes me in the next few weeks too!

  2. third listen to ‘postcard–the opening chords so tender–and the cry in his voice. What a treasure.

    Beautiful Mo, the sadness in the Crows eyes is so touching. Going to be a special one this one. And Rod’s song is so lovely’ ox

    A lovely ruler. Mo. I wonder what its story might be….

      the drawing set came in a beautiful blue velvet lined wooden box with a tray for 4 ivory handled nibs, scribers, two beautiful sets of compasses and an ebony handled amber burnisher F. Townshend of London is inscribed in the handle of one of the pens. 1885 is written on a scrap of paper in the bottom tray along with the tracing of a copperplate signature, some hand drawn scales, a colour study of iron ore & a piece of emery cloth. A landscape gardener friend gave it to me 20 years ago because I would use it & it had been given to him by one of his customers, I am very lucky!
