Daffodils May Cure Depression

DAFFODILS MAY CURE DEPRESSION, said my newspaper. Ha, I laughed, no shit Sherlock, OF COURSE they cure depression! Look at them.They are the happiest flowers in the world. They are my favourite flowers, and always make me smile. I wish you could buy them all year. I love daffodils. Anyways. The scientific breakthrough is because of some important chemicals-or-summat actually in them. Not because of their cheerful exterior. I feel some embroidery coming on. Daffodil prescriptions?

I went to the Washington Gallery in Penarth this morning to pick my work up from the exhibition, and OH I sold a piece! My swearing, fuck you embroidery. Which I liked very, very much- I am glad someone else did too. I wonder who bought it…

I have been drawing a lot lately. Sometimes it’s hard to stop…? Have to start scribbling the next one down before I’ve even finished the picture I’m on…. Been using indian ink, fine liners, a paint brush and a dip pen. It is going well, and feels lovely. Here are some ladies. I think they are the same person. In-fact I am starting to think that all of the women I draw are me. They’ve been following me around for years.
