I am really fascinated by buskers! Just hearing a variety of music (sometimes pretty good music) in the street for free, and often the buskers themselves look eccentric or different in some way. So many people walk past and try to ignore them, but every so often some passers-by are enthralled. And although musicians in the street are just ordinary people out to make a bit of extra money, to me there is something enigmatic or free-spirited about them. Also, I'm interested in life on the edge of the mainstream, and the element of risk and uncertainty there, as some people have noticed. This world is fascinating, beautiful and possibly dark and dangerous too.

Inspired by all the changes at this time of year... falling leaves, migrant birds, happy people and beautiful views... I'm still unsure which scanner to get, this one gives a coloured and paler tint to everything which is not ideal, so I'm looking to get one that will reproduce my artwork reasonably accurately!
