At home, with dogs, cats and paintings: no1, the kitchen, or there-abouts.

In my kitchen, angels.

In my kitchen there are angels by the window, watching, guarding a river of gold.

In love with hares

In my kitchen there are hares.

In the other window there is a dog, sometimes.

Sometimes there are dogs by the fire.

The room is scented with fire and logs and frankincence and cooking and sometimes wet and sandy dogs. And the house is warmed only by the log fire, the radiators running from this via a pump. This year my logs come from East Farm Firewood, from Rams Wood. More of that later.

Red walls and white walls.

Meanwhile in the studio I have been painting more for Song of the Golden Hare.

Two hounds, one silver, one black.

“High on the hill above the wood two hounds, one silver, one black raised their heads to read the wind and caught the scent of gold.”

About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    Love your dining table, its so shiny, but really writing this message to say how beautiful the dogs are looking, all of them, painted and real, even the one on the hound’s collar. I think there must be magic in your lovely house so many special things.
