When I am Old by Jenny Joseph

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

I am a huge fan of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and admire his style
and watercolour techniques and the Iris I photographed on Sunday reminds
me of his art deco style in many ways ~ my tribute to hime ~

*
Charles Rennie Mackintosh attended evening classes in art at the Glasgow School of Art. It was at these classes that he first met his future wife Margaret MacDonald, her sister Frances MacDonald, and Herbert MacNair who was also a fellow apprentice with Mackintosh at Honeyman and Keppie. MacNair and Frances would also marry. These close companions would later be known as the collaborative group “The Four”, prominent members of the "Glasgow School" movement.

This group of artists exhibited in Glasgow, London and Vienna, and these exhibitions helped establish Mackintosh's reputation. The so-called "Glasgow" style was exhibited in Europe and influenced the Viennese Art Nouveau movement known as Sezessionstil (in English, the Vienna Secession) around 1900. Mackintosh also worked in interior design, furniture, textiles and metalwork. Much of this work combines Mackintosh's own designs with those of his wife, whose flowing, floral style complemented his more formal, rectilinear work.

Later in life, disillusioned with architecture, Mackintosh worked largely as a watercolourist, painting numerous landscapes and flower studies (often in collaboration with Margaret, with whose style Mackintosh's own gradually converged) in the Suffolk village of Walberswick (to which the pair moved in 1914), where he was briefly arrested as amid accusations of being a German spy in 1915.[15] By 1923, he had entirely abandoned architecture and design and moved to the south of France with Margaret where he concentrated on watercolour painting. He was interested in the relationships between man-made and naturally occurring landscapes. Many of his paintings depict Port Vendres, a small port near the Spanish border, and the nearby landscapes.

I'm as old as I feel and I feel quite old
like some of your cars but my story's not told
do I wear purple or am I on my way
wearing lavender ~ I'm not going to say ;-)
with a red sun hat I sometimes do swear
not to wear purple anywhere ;-)
for there she goes ~ is what I will hear
Its Bev the old lady that is quite clear ;-)

Beautiful work: a lovely set, Bev. I think my preference of the images in notes is for the stamp... though all are fine. I was interested to see your mention in the thread of ipernity's glitches yesterday, I also encountered some.

beverleyplaya has replied to tiabunna
~ abstract iris ~ o0o yes it is mentioned in the ipernity blog, and said it might affect for a while and I think many switched off until later as it kept coming back again and then going off ... and of course picmonkey for framing and font was just not possible but it seems ok now, fingers crossed ;-) oOo
