A fribble is a trifle, frivolity, to play, fritter, totter, dabble, dawdle, dilly-dally, twiddle,
It all began in the New Year. I found an accidental image on my mobile, a white streak on a black background. Forever experimenting, I took black paper and tried to copy the image. Horrendous. The real thing was simply the best. I tried still life drawing, landscapes, but found it totally uninspiring and again horrendous... Despondent at my lack of expertise, with a coloured pencil I loosely, mindlessly scratched on the paper. A pattern was starting to emerge. I continued scribbling and playing with my coloured pencils, a sense of relief, letting go of any expectations. I was totally taken aback and highly surprised at what my thoughtless meandering across paper were creating.
