Patti Roberts-Pizzuto works with handmade paper, collage and stitched line. I have chosen snowy works by Patti but her works vary greatly she uses natural dyes in some, photography and more figurative 'drawing'. Patti's works are whispers, dreams, memories and poems.

I have a rare day off today, so I took the opportunity to paint the snow again. Last year I only got one chance as we live virtually on the beach and any snow does not linger for long. It is a cold process but I do love the effect and Freya is enchanted with colouring the snow too.

I came across the bottom image last year, and oblivious to the creator printed it and put it in my diary, but now I know that these are the wonderful visions of French artist Sandrine Estrade Boulet. In a moment I have to go out into the blizzards and I will look like the top image only alot less elegant.

A chance conversation and a 4am seed of an idea caused all this madness in the hairdressing department at Adam Smith College today. Movember arrived on everyones face's, and look at those smiles, fantastic!
The top photograph is so beautiful how does she manage to look so stunning with a tash?

With a lovely humour this is the work of French artist Roland Roure, who makes kinetic sculptures and art objects that sing with the joy of life. Childlike and yet sophisticated and beautiful Roland Roure's work will make you smile.

Louise-Marie Cumont is unfortunately elusive on the web, scattered mentions, but you can get her books from amazon. I wish there was a whole site dedicated to her work rather than just fleeting glimpses, for her work is wonderful.
I have had a fantastic fun in Aviemore with students and staff from Malta, Denmark and Kirkcaldy, so much laughter, but it is always good to get home to my family and my own bed.

I love the containment of the figure in both of these compositions by Carole Henaff, and of course the colour. The top Illustration of the whirling dervish is quite magical. Carole Henaff is a French illustrator who trained and now lives in the magical city of Barcelona.
