Big Dipper.

By Mollycat
The top of a large, very large, cut glass vase I bought Lesley a few years ago. Looking at it it suddenly reminded me of the
Big Dipper I used to ride on as a kid back in the '40s/'50s at the fun fair in Porthcawl during the miners holidays in August.
Strange the way the mind and memories play tricks.

Thank you for your kind comments at my attempt on a William Morris print, and especially to Patricia, Chrissie and Ju for their
valued UA's, really appreciated. Thank you.

A vase shaped as such will hold the flowers so well, ----- this is an interesting black and white version of your vase!
This becomes a very interesting abstraction, Peter.

A terrific abstract which reminds me of music or a musical sound!
A great image Peter and great processing. It could almost be a chalk drawing on a black board.
