A Christmas (Eve) Miracle

Today the opposite of tomato is 'just some Joseph looking for a manger'

Well, almost something of a miracle...the appearance of a newly-produced & blogged drawing shouldn't be somewhat 'remakable', but it has been a while, scandalously, since a drawing was processed. Nothing new to report, however, with the continuation of the 'roadkill' diptych theme & format, on this particular occasion featuring an appropriately festively-liveried subject-object (of the habitual found variety)...

graphite & putty eraser with watercolour/30x20cm

Yesterday evening brought a pre-Christmas snowfall, captured photographically at the time (here presented in composite panoramic view over the front garden & the immediate & near-beyond)

& again this morning


Jesca Hoop 'Kismet'
Black Box Recorder 'England Made Me'
Hanne Hukkelberg 'Rykestrasse 68'
Cat Power 'The Greatest'

&, for accompanying the wrapping of the presents, as has become traditional in these parts, for there truly is nothing more efficacious, 'The Essential Leonard Cohen'

Currently enjoying very much the 'getting to know you' process of discovering the many & varied wonders of Jesca's Hoop's 'Kismet', which is providing excellent grist to the creative mill, & fits jolly nicely alongside an album such as 'Rykestrasse 68', another of the year's grateful discoveries & an enduring listening pleasure.
