    I always love seeing your gallery and exhibit visits, but your meeting with Fiona makes this post extra special

  2. Wonderful work, thanks for sharing. I can’t work out how Joshua Yeldham’s work is made, are they manipulated photos?

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Debbie))) the digitally manipulated photograph by Joshua Yeldham is seriously big, nearly 2 metres across printed with an Epson 11880 Archival printer on thick cotton rag paper that he carves & manipulates adding further relief textures with string and small painted dowels, stunning work!

  3. Like it a lot and meeting in real life is such surprise…

    Oh Mo – it was so wonderful to meet in person! An absolute highlight for me and I am so glad we could do it. Another time we might even get to sit quietly…thank you for your support as ever. Go well.

    What exquisite work! Amazing detail – awesome!

  6. Judy Martin says:

    I can see how the first two artists that you featured would inspire you, Mo. This work reminds me of yours – how you use elements of nature, and fine stitch and bead work. I also enjoyed seeing the photos of Fiona and think her dress is way cool. xo Thanks for sharing all of this.

    You are such a great curator/docent for the rest of us! Thank you.

    Lovely to see the photos of you and Fiona meeting up. And on her blog too. Thanks – made me beam! Two inspirational people.

    Wonderful photos, Mo, and a delight to see Fiona in her beautifully elegant dress. So good you were able to meet her at last; she and Barry are very special, as are you and Roderick. ((((Mo))))
