see 'Susurrus' at deviantART

"And filling in, brimming in, sparkling and free
The sweet susurration of incoming sea."

from 'A Bay in Anglesey' by John Betjeman

My final entry in the Abstract Elements Contest, chosen to represent Water. Colour, wave motion and the circling school of fish motifs suggest the sea in calm mode, with a lulling-to-sleep motion.

I've been re-exploring the wedge_julia-lazysusan combination.

see 'Burst' at deviantART

My second entry in this Abstract Elements Contest, chosen to represent Air. Invisible in itself, it manifests in a most awesome and destructive manner in the form of whirlwinds and the much larger hurricanes.

Stripped and packed

see 'Stripped and packed' at deviantART

Bare floorboards, clean-swept; cupboards stripped to the shelves and dusted, the doors left open; the only objects the wooden packing trunks, all shut now, latched with ancient hasps. The end of a shared life.

Always another disc-julian up the sleeve ;)

Rainforest canopy

see 'Rainforest canopy' at deviantART

Perhaps surprisingly, this has its origins in the stained glass framework, still visible but not obvious.

My (first?) entry in this Abstract Elements Contest, chosen to represent the fifth element, Life, Spirit. Home to two-thirds of the Earth's species, the rainforest, for me, makes a pretty good representative of that element!

Watching you

see 'Watching you' at deviantART

Layer upon layer of surveillance. Let them eat their own fear.

Full view essential. Revisiting a style I discovered last year with fresh twists and first outing for the Invisibility feature.

The woven bowl

see 'The woven bowl' at deviantART

Full view essential to appreciate the manner in which the exquisitely-patterned tagliatelle tricolore has become intimately involved with moodily-lit masonic flooring :D

Chiffon fantasy 2

see 'Chiffon fantasy 2' at deviantART

It's been some while since I last had a Chiffon fantasy :D Offers to join me in lavish drapery, on a note please, stating colour and any other preferences ;)

Flipped disc, a further tweak of Some enchanted forest.

Knower's ark

see 'Knower's ark' at deviantART

Like the owls in Twin Peaks, the panels are not what they seem ;) The Akashic records, fashioned into a Big Boat, the better to weather the coming storm.

More disc-julian tweakery.
