Homage to the humble weed

By definition, a weed is an unwanted plant: an irritant that  upsets our sense of order and tidiness!  But, when observed closely, a weed often exhibits interesting features such as form, shape, pattern, texture and colour.  It can provide source material for creative development and expression

Each image in this series is an interpretation of a small weed (varying between  5 and 12 cms) growing in the cracks of my garden path.  In some instances the original background has been removed to emphasise the shape.

It is tempting to see a similarity in shape with artefacts or creatures e.g  an item of jewellery

or, perhaps, a prehistoric creature?!

Abstract ‘Playmates’

These abstract images are derived from the natural  patterns formed by lugworm casts on a sandy beach.

Sunlight on the stream


The autumn sunlight highlighted the ripples on the shallow stream and shone through the clear water to illuminate the natural patterns beneath.
