    But, but, it’s owls…mmmmm…owls. Thanks, Mo, as I can’t get down to see this. Owls! ooo…mmm

  2. fiona says:

    what an art-filled week or so you’ve had – so inspiring! Thanks for sharing…

  3. Liz says:

    Such exquisite mark making … with the feel of stitch
    Many thanks to Old Man Crow for the close-up of the cane … I can only imagine how it must appear in person

    • Mo Crow says:

      there are 5 rooms of art in the survey that Joshua has developed this century, he has worked so hard with such deep heart and found his way, a beautiful soul that shines brightly

    Another amazing armchair voyage. This post and the last. Thanks Mo.

  5. deanna7trees says:

    beautiful visuals. i always appreciate what you share with us.

    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks for visiting Deanna, I wonder if it’s possible to OD on art? there’s an opening to go to tonight too!

      • deanna7trees says:

        funny that you should say that. i used to love to go to art and quilting shows in person and i have completely lost interest in doing that. i get enough inspiration online and i would rather be working at home on my own art.

        • Mo Crow says:

          Interesting, this month I unsubscribed to all the online blogs and galleries I visit as I was getting a bit overstimulated & am enjoying savouring the art experience in real time

  6. Dana says:

    The intricacy of Joshua’s work reminded me of you, Mo. What spectacular owls….and Liz is right, they have the feeling of stitch.

    • Mo Crow says:

      Hi Dana, am still buzzing from the spirit of Joshua’s work, the way he drills holes in the boards and inserts canes gives the owls the dimension of stitch and his carved photographs are like lace!

  7. When I saw the title of your post, my heart started beating faster – Joshua Yeldham is my favorite contemporary artist. How I would love to see even one of his pieces in person! Thanks for sharing some of his magic; and wow, Sydney is spectacular!

  8. Carol says:

    Thank you, Mo, for another wonderful experience through your eyes. Oh, the owls! What an amazing artist!

  9. Carol says:

    And oh, our Sydney Harbour – another work of art!

  10. spectacular stuff–i will return to look!
