The night before I made this we went to a gig at Bridport Arts Centre to see The Sea Cabinet production by Gwyneth Herbert. One of the performers, Fiona Bevan, was also the warm up act and I think she stole everyone’s hearts. It was a really excellent evening and afterwards they came out to talk and promote their wares. We bought Fiona’s CD and when she signed it for us I told her about #Collage365 and how I had done a collage for Beth Orton after seeing her (Number 12) and said I might do one for her.  She challenged me to make it better than Beth’s: you can decide. This is it – the title is one of her songs.
