The project: dreamgarden, working with ideas of thriving and of dreaming up a world we want to live in through 6 workshops at Growing Space, Abergavenny.
The dreamgarden workshops continued this morning with most participants drawing and painting real and imaginary flowers onto gesso’d natural wood slices. The few source books I’d brought along were supplemented by the art group’s own selection of art and plant books.
One member of the group brought photos of their beautiful old pond built by their father, which they had drawn and painted on the landscape roll last week.
One participant doubted her ability to draw flowers yet after a short break returned sure she could now draw them, tried again and proved herself right. The power of the mind and thought to allow us to do things or to prevent us from even starting repeatedly bowls me over.
