A holiday can be a good time to catch inspiration unawares.
The fire of the 'Burning Bush' icon took on new meaning once I realised
what a lot of effort it is tending and keeping a fire burning.
these brambles and bushes were food for thought on the
foliage element of the icon. Spiky, angular, not too leafy.
a gargoyle from Kirkbymoorside parish church Norman(?)
simplified face in 'ideal' proportions.
away time is excellent for that.
