Storm Ciara passed and the sun came out for just enough time to paint this. Thank you Joanna Bond for posting this quote on my facebook feed. I had been looking for a while for something that felt right for the new year. Accidentally put up on Valentines day !
The autumn is drawing in and our memories of long hot sunny days receeding. I hope these characters will cheer you as you walk past moving into winter times.
The Queen of Splott has now been joined by Barclodiad y Gawres. (translates as The Apron of the Giantess ) A story of a flying giantess flinging boulders from her apron to form mountains, valleys and cromlechs. After singing the poem in a beautiful place in France with Tinc y Tannau I wanted to keep the magic of the memory alive for a little bit longer. (A translation of the poem will appear soon.)
She heralded in the new year and here she’s being very loud and noisy welcoming in the summer. Say hello to the Queen of Splott.
