Rupert and the Poetry Book

This week my life has been taken over by a ton + of chicken manure. My veg plot needs a constant supply of this stuff so i have been loading/unloading a trailer all week. How many forkfuls in a ton? A lot I can tell you. I am pooped literally.

So no energy for the planned large canvases! Instead i am ongoing with more Rupert. This time I had a school poetry book (1958) and have combined suitable images from a 1970's Rupert annual to compliment the poems. These are 6x4, postcard size mounts.

I am having great fun doing these, it takes me back to my childhood, when I used to read my books under the covers, lit by a torch. Any one else do that? The last one is one of my favourites, take some time out for yourself.


  1. Oh Joan they are so lovely. I wish i had your talent..... Yes i can remember reading with a torch under the bedclothes, Oh happy days. I too love the last poem its very emotional. Take care Linda xx
