Tea Towel - The Raking of the Leaves


This tea towel is from my 'Raking of the Leaves' linocut which is all about Autumn in my garden at Holly Tree Cottage. Autumn is always a splendid affair, but last year it seemed even more spectacular, perhaps this was because I was at home more than usual and was far more in tune with the changes. With Marple's help I found myself raking the leaves pretty much everyday and as a consequence noticed the quiet fading of the flowers - the rudbeckias slowly lost their leaves and the once magnificent acanthus shed it's flowers and showed the beautiful structure underneath. I am always the fox eared creature in all of my prints - it's my animal spirit.

The tea towels are natural coloured and 100% cotton
