… or ginormous lotus flowers?

Happy New Year!

(Is 7 January too late to be saying that? I’ve been a little preoccupied and am a bit slow off the mark!).

This funny-looking (but wise!) little elephant in his ‘grove’ of giant lotus flowers was made towards the end of last year as a studio-warming gift for my yoga teacher on the opening of her new yoga studio… but I thought he’d also be willing to make an appearance here to trumpet in the new year. Wishing you all a very happy, peaceful & creative 2011!

P.S. If you’re looking for somewhere in Amsterdam to kick-start your 2011 yoga practice I can highly recommend the Yoga Community :)

I recently dusted off my long-neglected macro lens and, in addition to stalking the cat with it, have been enjoying documenting the growth and blooming things on our little rooftop garden. In celebration of today’s solstice here are some (technically inept) close-ups of summer’s abundant unfurling… - #summer #solstice #roofgarden #growth #gardening #botanical #form #pattern #colour #sempervivum #arachnoideum #alpine #crassulaceae #lupin #osteospermum #cape_marguerite #sedum #stonecrop #brassica #chinese_cabbage -

This is the 8th instalment of the long-distance sketchbook/notebook collaboration I’m working on with @yokocelt. IG is not the best platform for displaying tall, portrait orientation images so I’ve split it into two parts (swipe left for the bottom half) but you can see the full image, various details, work-in-progress pics and Yoko’s previous entry to which this is a ‘response’ over on my blog, link in profile: tinyurl.com/y9tssgba - #yoko_suzanne_collab #mujinotebook #collaboration #cross_section #earth #seedlings #cat #skeleton #bones #earths_core #molten #fire #gouache #ink #papercutting #mulberrypaper #kozopaper #colour #pattern #tribute #gira #rip -
