It's that time again!

Once again, we have been sent some great work for the new show, this time entitled 'Home'.  The theme attracted much good, some bad and some pretty darn scary work - we won't name them, but it must be remembered we are putting pictures up in a family restaurant!  Death and decay are all very well but...

Anyhow, the new chosen ones are:

Fiona Purves from Edinburgh creates beautiful, playful drawings of people's front doors, the first thing you see of the place someone calls home, and a little clue about who they are.

Her very pretty website has lots of  images from her projects, including her illustration degree show, a book about a mischievous dog called Max.

Leila Bibizadeh's home is by the landmark Tower Bridge, leading her to send us this piece for the show.

With buildings such as this often forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Leila reminds herself how lucky she is to be surrounded by these magnificent, historic pieces of architecture.

Caroline Hancox has a busy blog with work that could not epitomise Home much more than this. 

See the photo-diptych dialogue with Ian Land. Very nice - they live 114 miles apart and have never met, but post a photo each, together every week.

And finally, we have paintings by Satu Vartiainen, and a painting, drawings and photographs by us Maggypies. 

So, cheers to the new roost of ladies! As for the gents?  Perhaps not so drawn towards home and bird-related matter as the rest of us then. 

Photos coming soon from hang-time on Wednesday.
