Pearl one


The little watercolour is from my sketchbook and shows Alex sleeping about the only time she is still.
The other day Mr and Mrs Powell came into the Exhibition to have a good look around. They always show an interest in the work and turn up to all our exhibitions in the area. Well Alex greeted them but didn't notice at first the odd look she was getting. Eventually she realised she had a knitting needle stuck in her hair while she was walking around with them. In fairness neither Mr nor Mrs Powell had mentioned it. She had previously been sat knitting and had parked one of the needles in her hair to do some sewing up and then forgotten about it. Consequently it looked like a cross between a  minimalist fascinator and a Geisha's hair pin.
