Bring Your Wellies.

The space between the fox and the hareMy van is almost packed with hares and foxes and heron and leopard and cats and all manner of curious things, including seven kingfishers. Today I drive across the width of beautiful Wales into the Cotswold hills and on to Stony Stratford. Tomorrow to Waterperry and Art in Action.

I have been dreading the festival being cancelled because of the awful weather, but they have arranged alternative parking and shuttle busses and so hopefully all will be well. I am hoping the Muses can knock the weather god into shape and gather some sunshine to smile on us, but I suggest if you are coming that wellies and brollies may be required.

The Shape of the Heart: The Space Between: Contemplation on Love: The Hare and the Fox, pictured above is my piece for The Best of the Best tent. I will take my camera and try and get as many pictures as I can for those who cannot come. And if you can come, then see you there.

Here is one from two years ago to wet your appetite.

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.

      Sadly the hare and fox didn’t even make it into the best of the top 3, but was much admired and has gone to a new home. Wellies and brolly were surplus to requirements!

    Hi Jackie

    How lovely to meet you the other day.. You are the star that I hoped you would be..
    Not only talented, but generous with your time and to trust me with your manuscript.. An honor.. Thank you..

    You lifted me into the pages with ease and I walked alongside the bear turning my head as he did and smelling his thick wintery coat and the night air.. I still have the pictures going around in my head, it is marvelous, a joy, and I can’t wait to read the rest of it. You have me hanging by a thread.. No mean feat for someone weighing
    74 kilos.

    As I said, I think that it would make the most amazing film.. Try not sell it to one of those giant American film company’s that make that bland children’s animated stuff.. Ooops! I mean films… That all look the same.. And boring. They couldn’t and wouldn’t do your work justice.. Money is probably good though..

    Hope you enjoyed the rest of the afternoon and your flapjack.. ~ Julie..

    • Jackie says:

      Lovely to meet you too and so glad you liked it. Thank you for spending the time reading it, and will let you know when it is out. Great and very necessary tea and flapjack. Thank you.
