Fag Ash Lilies

15 Sep

I went for a walk around the city centre yesterday to get some fresh air – my studio was full of turpentine fumes – so I had a scribbling session outdoors while it cleared. I saw these two ladies sitting on a bench, chatting with their fags in hand. My Nanna always used to refer to women who smoked as ‘Fag Ash Lil’, in a very good-natured way though. So here are two Fag Ash Lilies, scribbled into my new purple silk recycled sari, hand-made paper A5 sketchbook. In case any readers from outside Britain are wondering, a fag is a cigarette this side of the pond 🙂
