Wendy Horler

As I finished writing my last entry and came to putting in the links, I made the joyful discovery that my friend Wendy has a new website.

And as I looked through images of lots of familiar work, I realised again how brilliantly her experimental, playful approach are infused all the way through with her sense of humour.  A few of my favourites ...

I love this picture, even more so because it's simply called 'Weird Flower'!
Wendy is, in my opinion, a 3d artist at heart.  It's tricky to choose a favourite, but we really overlap when it comes to our love of playing with ways to use the things we stumble across, whether scraps of metal or leaves from the garden.
This came from a dream, I think, one of the two paintings on display at Discerning Eye.
