I’m hugely inspired by textures and basically all sorts of things that get my imagination going.
Today I had to go to London so, as it’s the Summer holidays, thought I’d take my son too and combine it with a trip to a museum… …taking a walk, looking at inspiring walls and metal panels… …but teenagers are not impressed with that stuff; they want to see the dark side of life…so we visited Grant Museum of Zoology…which is not for the faint hearted, but perfect for curious boys… I struggled with the aesthetics of skeletons and all sorts of things in jars…
…there was quite a pretty cabinet full of glass animal ( or rather invertebrate ) sculptures which were amazing and so life like…but I can’t say I liked the glass slugs! But the illuminated cabinet type room full of old microscope slides was completely amazing!…it really reminded me of Space Odyssey
…and then a tiny exhibit of pretty shells stood out, and stayed with me until I got home… …and that’s kind of how it happened when I should have been cooking supper!
