      thanks Jane, working on a big scale has always been quite a challenge for me as I love focusing on the fine details but this one fell together fast!

    love the pocket watch hands 😉 you always find special things !!!

    • Mo Crow says:

      that old pocket watch was given to me by my Uncle Stan, a New York City fireman when I was 17, he thought if I knew the time it would help me find a job but I overwound & broke it within one week, have never owned another watch…!)

  12. There is excitement and wonder here today!

    • Mo Crow says:

      it feels so amazing to be working on the first copy this morning, the heart talisman is tied in & am halfway through the hand colouring of no 1, only 99 & 1/2 to go!

  13. handstories says:

    dreamtime come to life! I can feel the weight of that lock.

  14. You have every right to be excited – what glorious creations!

  15. deemallon says:

    so wish we weren’t half a globe apart… very exciting

  16. Carol says:

    Wonderful magic being performed here, Mo! I’ve checked my phone calendar (again) to be sure I have the date and times of the opening and I’m determined to make it. What an exhibition this will be.

  17. Congratulations, this is very exciting!

  18. Robyn says:

    Scrolling back to find your constructions for the show. This piece looked absolutely amazing on the white wall. Phew Mo! You have worked so hard! Well done!
