"Where to begin?- that was the question at what point to make the first mark? One line placed on the canvas committed her to innumerable risks, to frequent and irrevocable decisions." -Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse.

Blues, pearls, waves, salt and the sea... Where to begin indeed, this is how I work, on lines where I can see it all until I'm confident enough to stick it down, to commit to it...

Today I love blueberries and my sea green jumper, I love my grandmothers cameo ring and the blue of the sky. Today I love my polaroid film in anticipation of the camera I finally bought and as always, I can't stand fairweather friends. Today the woman I want to be sleeps soundly and dreams only of the present. She reads whole books in one sitting and the newspaper with her morning coffee...
