Love how these small dwr-gis dry on the textured paper. So, have big sheets of heavy textured paper on order and plans to have a day or two of otter painting.


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.

    The otters do enchant, indeed! I loved your tweet of the newspaper article about the labyrinth stones!

    Oh lord – the stone between the tails
    And the spaces between
    And the sweep of the curve
    And the golden specklyness
