I like the way you just casually mention that your father-in-law is Tom Phillips !!!
I have been a fan of his since my college days (have a copy of a 'Hummament' and a book of his work that came out in the 70's - and have referred pupils to his work during my varied teaching career in Secondary schools in the Uk), liking the way that he sets his own agenda and is so eclectic (and incredibly prolific) - using words, images and photographic distortion for instance.
I haven't looked at his stuff for a long time, so thanks for reminding me with the link...I also have amassed collection of props, amongst which are some African masks etc. as well as my bits of pottery, glass and oriental items. They all make for good subject matter...
Bon Noel !
Thanks for a year full of many beauties. MerryChristmas to you and Ruth and Louis. Lovely juicy colors, this one.
