Carolyn Skinner of Oz Arts Magazine wrote a glowing article about our Crow Book!
now what was it that Dickens said ?… ah thank you Google
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”
isn’t it funny (as in odd rather than hilarious) how this is the saddest week of my whole life and the most exciting all at the same time!
On Monday Madeleine of Artsite Gallery sold “Honesty” in ” The GPS has no idea where I am going”
x fingers Dark Moon with Ladder sells too!
the show continues til the 23rd

PS we are missing Ariel so much but all the heartfelt good vibes from around the world are helping heaps

  1. And into the midst of deep sadness, drops of joy. XXX

    Probably better that way, Mo. We all need emotional leavening.(All the same, I know how hard it can be.) xx

      (((Di))) what a week, after we buried Ariel and had a little wake for him with a few stiff drinks as we went to bed I heard the most beautiful sound of a temple bell ringing three times, there is powerful magic in this transition for the Full Moon, we planted Honesty on his grave at sunset and at midnight a gentle rain began to fall
      the grief comes in waves, he taught us so much… and at the same time so many good things are happening for the art side of my life, the Book of Honesty has really raised the bar and I’m lining up a solo show for late 2018

  3. Carol says:

    Such a sad week for you and Rod, Mo, but leavened with the reminder that beautiful things can still happen. Wonderful news about the Crow Book review and (excitement) the sale of Honesty 2017!
    ((((Mo and Rod))))

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Carol))) when I try to recite that first line from Dickens I burst into tears… he so got it, the two sides of the coin that help make this human experience go way deep and so very high

  4. bronwyn says:

    Love the final paragraph in the article about you Mo, “Mo….ventures deep into every detailed crack and crevice, every feather and tendril.”

  5. What a roller coaster Mo – been thinking of you.. Yes, way deep and so high…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Susi))) the man is telling me we gotta go to work n-n-n-ow!
      PS just back from our weekly Happy Triffid indoor plant hire, it was good to just do the routine watering and tending in quirky inner city businesses, very grounding…

  6. Life is like a tidal wave, sometimes peppered with sharp shards of cut glass, sometimes cool and soft like a mohair wrap. Dear you two, you are in my thoughts.

  7. Rene says:

    I am so thrilled for your good fortune in this time of sadness and grief. Our beloved pets leave us so many wonderful memories. Congratulations on your sales-your work is incredibly beautiful and I love seeing your posts of work in progress. I am also a fan of Jude Hill. Her strays move me deeply. Have a good creative day. Kind Regards, Rene.

  8. Louise Watson says:

    Good news to temper the sadness. Congratulations and understanding. I think about our old dog often. Still miss and love her 10 years on. Life is richer for it. Good thing about memory you can always turn back a page. Much love.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Louise))) I am making a talisman for Old Man Crow to hold onto, on Wednesday I began by stitching together a bundle of his shed whiskers, then tried adding some of his claw sheaths but that didn’t feel right, bound a shard of ceramic that I found as we smoothed the earth at the bottom of his grave to receive his body but that wasn’t right either, this morning I will see if my favourite sea worn piece of driftwood will work… it’s happening…

  9. Thats great Mo, lovely pieces

  10. that you planted Honesty….

  11. Catherine Wright says:

    So happy and sad for you both xxx

    What a wonderful tribute to the two of you! & yes, the quirkiness of the balances in life is baffling. Love to you both.
