Silhouettes

You know that evening pastime in Jane Austen novels, where one person would sit as still as a statue while their companion cut out their silhouette in paper? Sometimes, the light here at sunset falls in such a way that it makes me want to get out the paper and scissors.  on brink of sunset 8-10-13sunset through walnut tree 7-10-135 to remember
el pasatiempo – the pastime
una novela – a novel
la estatua – the statue
el/la compañero/a – companion
la silueta – the silhouette

      Ah… but we’ve just been to see the Matisse exhibition at Tate Modern, and he cut-out his shapes with the most enormous pair of dressmaking shears. So I am inspired now! SD

        How fantastic, lucky you. I’m very jealous as Pete and I longed to go and see it when we were in London last week but we had so much to do in the house that we ran out of time – boo hoo!! We run an art school here in the village for the children on Friday afternoons and we all had a go and the Matisse cut-outs, they loved it 😀
