Finally I have got back into my studio and started printing – feels great to be back. So I thought I would update with a couple of examples that I am working on. I have been looking at Ben Nicholson among others and really enjoy the way he uses line, and different viewpoints so have been experimenting with that. They are, I suppose, monotypes rather than monoprints but that is quite a technical difference. We have quite a crop of apples, and gourds from the garden this year and autumn feels like an appropriate time for these sorts of colours.
What else has been going on? Well, if you subscribe to ‘Artists and Illustrators’ then check me out as I wrote the ‘star letter’ which resulted in a lovely voucher for £50 for art materials. Decided that maybe I should abandon art as a career and just write letters to magazines! I have nothing booked up in the way of exhibitions till next May when we do Artweeks but that always requires a lot of new work, and, in addition, publicity photos need to be in before Christmas! I have another biggish exhibition in October 2015 in New Brewery Arts Cirencester, which feels like a long way off but, again, will require all new work, so I really do need to start getting serious.
