3BT – recycling that, I know here, supplies to be used, in the pouch

3BT

1. Amongst the rubble from John’s electronics teardowns, I find just what I need – the underside of a panel from an old printer is divided into small sections and is begging to be used as a makeshift artists’ palette. 2. I like how Lily has a list of houses that she knows and how […]

3BT – bubble wrap, cheesy smile, new plot

3BT

1. The parcel I’ve been eagerly awaiting arrives – my new sketchbook and some other art equipment – but almost better than the contents is the packaging: sheets of soft sea-green bubbles. 2. The edge of the cheese has dried out but the spoiled crescent works well as a goofy grin or, flipped over, a […]

3BT – wet/quick/perfect pizza, reading in Louisa’s chair, touch, sweet treat

3BT

1. It’s impossibly wet for our drive into the city centre – a fast river gushes down one side of the road, a slower plane covers the other. 1b. We are in and out in about ten minutes: after waiting nearly five years for the first one, we’ve only had to wait for months to […]

3BT – trimmed, flutter/tsh, my picture, before

3BT

1. Having neat, trimmed fingernails again. 2. The wind blows and a shower of leaves flutters to the ground. 2b. Whenever the air is a little smoky – from woodburners, bonfires or more dubious things – Lily registers her protest with a single, exaggerated “tsh”. It’s not quite a sneeze, just a nasal “oh my, […]
