The Romance Of Cheese

digital collage 12ins x 12 ins

LaWendula's Paper Swap is having a serious effect upon me. As my friend has not yet commented on my work with Barbara's papers, I can only presume that she is utterly appalled that her lovely idea has brought about such a rapid degeneration in my creative practice. However, I feel that Barbara must take some responsibility for this as she sent me the little Dutch magazine cutting of a cheese advert that inspired this layout. I find it difficult to be serious about cheese adverts. So, LaWendula my darling, if you want me to produce Paper-Swap art with more gravitas, you must keep Barbara and I apart in future or we are just going to carry on sitting at the back of the class and giggling.
Actually, I deeply indebted to both LaWendula and Barbara for providing me with some silly distraction while my mum and sister have been ill with Swine Flu. This morning, my sister reported that mum is back to talking for England and so MUST be on the mend. Thanks to all of you who have sent best wishes, my mum is thrilled to know that people all over the planet Earth are taking an interest in her health!

Darling, there must be something wrong with the comment, because I did write a comment on the last post about your paper swap collage, it was so wonderful! But as I see, my comment has been swept away. (Up to data nirvana I think)
Anyway, I love what you are doing!

I'm so sorry for your ill family! Tell them all my best wishes too from my true un-german, deeply British heart!
So we will see if this comment will be seen.

I love your cheeseheads dahling :)

I'm glad for your mum that she's "talking for England." Was it Guy Fawkes day that brought her revival?

I think you are making art just for me. Don't burst my bubble. Look at those fish! Fish fondue! Brilliant and I bow down before thee . . . and it gives me an idea about our "project" - all fish related! hee hee! Okay, I'll say it again . . . I LOVE THIS! And I need this one too.

I love this wonderful witty piece! I do hope your family members recover soon and so nice to hear from you. I find that my internet explorer causes me all kinds of problems with other blogs, freezing, difficulty navigating- it drives me crazy! Your "Survival of the Pointiest"- is brilliant. Amazing inspiration to me!

I love every inch of it.

and giggling at the back of the class has always been my favourite activity! :)
(I even did it at my lamaze classes...)

Some years ago I went to France to retire in the peace of its beautiful countryside. It was not long before I was swept into the fascinating world of French cheeses. A man called Pierre Androuet once said" Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth." This inspired me to publish a series of poems..Tasting to Eternity...if I had seen your site before the inspiration might have come from you. Congratulations
