Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Ok A bit of a WOYWW cop out

cos its not my workspace and these weren't taken on Wednesday,

 but in my kitchen on Sunday evening after a walk to the Broads in the afternoon 

and then in Ed's school field on Monday. Every year they have an Art Day, and the Mums (or dads) are invited in to help them - no surprise that I love this day! 

This years theme was 'Birds' and Ed and two of his mates decided to make an Imperial Eagle... 

This particular Eagle is indigenous to Norfolk!!

obviously the stoat in it's mouth is the best bit!! (I made that! ;-p )
and here is his mate Maisie's Robin...

Recycling at its best!

and just a family shot of us at the Art Exhibition

So sorry Julia, no desk.... but you did say on your blog yesterday not to take everything too literally - so I haven't
