and finally tonight…

Buses…that’s what my posts are like….nothing for ages and then 3 at once.

The last couple of days away have given me non-internet space to doodle,to play with collage, paint, the camera and some lead tokens I bought from a metal detectorist. They look very like coins and the ones I have vary in size between that of a modern 5 and 10p piece. They are made of lead and impressed/stamped with a variety of designs. They have been used for bartering and as extra, often local,  currency for centuries.

I’m fascinated by the mixture of solid, strong lines combined with weathering and decay. I’m also a sucker for a circle and have decided to embrace it and explore the motif rather than ignore it.
