  1. Honesty knows no bounds.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Michelle))) our artist book group of 10 women are putting a zine together “to engage in cooperative art making on a small scale in a free association with what ‘creativity’ means with the emphasis on simple and fun, not a major work, rather a small exploration of an idea.”

    Honesty, honestly, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Waiting for the eclips of the sun ???
    (that you and I won’t see …)

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Els))) In 1974 I watched a full eclipse of the sun reflected in a dam on the southwest coast of Western Australia, at the height of the eclipse when the sky turned deep indigo and the stars came out a black swan flew up from the dam reflecting the rainbow sunset colours at the edge of the sky in the white under it’s wings, it was a transforming liminal moment in my life but on reflection a dumb thing to do that my old eyes are paying for now…

  4. Sun moon shadow seed – and indigo infusing it all – beautiful indeed

    I love the progression Mo – and the outcome. Each little element belongs just where it is – including the obligatory drops of blood! Enjoy!
