    Aaah, I love all these moons🍀🎵

  2. you’re amazing in the details.

    • Mo Crow says:

      the tiny details is a lifelong obsession, the good thing about the eyes growing dim and the hands getting less dextrous is I have to work bigger!

      • Liz A says:

        You could’ve fooled me … those whisper-fine touches of red in The Illustrated Lyrics of Old Man Crow are a wonder! And then there are all the beautiful details surrounding them. Truly amazing!

        • Mo Crow says:

          (((Liz))) practice makes perfect, I painted 3,700 of those touches of red in the limited edition of 100 books, “Take a Ride” was the only song where the red wouldn’t fit! The original drawings are on big sheets of watercolour paper (560mm x 760mm) so they gave me the room to make gestural marks, something i am looking forward to exploring more and I want to make a longer moon ladder this week just for fun!

    Mo! Beautiful moons…each one absorbs me, has its own enchantment. Love also a glimpse of your show. Awesome! Any chance you could wander through with a video cam rolling and give us a virtual tour of your gallery exhibition for those of us who cannot be there in person?

    • Mo Crow says:

      will have a go but can’t promise anything as film making is not really in my repertoire!

      • Christina says:

        You can make a video recording on your mobile phone or even use a friend’s, if no camera. Hand held and just wander through, stopping for a while at your favorite places….slow and dreamy. What would you want to convey or share with those of us who cannot be there? The Tate has some great shorts on the Tate channel of artists in their studios…talking about their way…of seeing, working, living, loving. Be great to see you there in one of those…one day.

  4. Yum Yum and a thousand times YUM. Oh my you are a wonder, wondrous wonder woman! Hope you get to do the wander through with video camera. Might be good to collaborate with someone by having them wander ahead of you and just follow them, stopping at each featured piece to hold still for a count of ten (for example

  5. Lovely Mo. Feeling very in need of calming energies right now. These hit the
    spot.

    drool drool… lovely to see these again….drool …….
    Btw Mo, do you know where I can get dyed emu feathers from these day? A very large sculpt I did 20 years ago, has pink and green feathers for hair, and some have deteriorated badly, and need replacing.
    YES, hope you can get some footage of your fabulous show. It’s been a great privilage and pleasure to seet it all happen from the beginning. Marg oxox

      (((Marg))) it feels amazing, we packed up the sold work whilst Old Man Crow played guitar and friends dropped in for champagne and a last look ’round, didn’t get any video footage but will get Pete Cox’s opening address up on Youtube soon.
