RIP Brian the cat

My helpful assistant of many blog posts took against the big snow we had here. His ashes were scattered in the wild bit across the road where he spent many happy hours ignoring the lure of the cat treats.

amongst the household the amount of minor injuries will plummet.

A larger fence that still stops

I cut a new plate of the same subject. to give more space for the fence, or lack of it to breathe. I wanted to see what adding colour would look like.

Here are the final prints on this subject for the moment. One day it would be nice to produce a small edition, once I’ve chosen the colours. Read the rest of this entry »

Four badly painted walls

Things are really hard at the moment, but I was really desperate to do something. Anything. I miss my shed. I haven’t been in it for a month and then two months before that. Don’t forget the shed.

These are reject stock printed canvases that I painted with gesso ages ago. For a while they’ve had a colleges mounted on them and have just been hanging around.

In a fit of deciding to do something about the heap my life is in at the moment I raided the end less cupboard of art for some inks.

Spontaneous art who’d of thunk it!

I’ve left these out side the shed and I might come back to them or might just attack the rest of the prepared canvases.

Time out…

 Things are a bit hard at the moment, so although I’ve lots of stuff done and lots of stuff on going you’re getting a shed picture.
Yeah individual strawberry pavlova and strawberry tea just about sums it up. I’m okay really, just had a few things flagged up that are going to take a while to process.

The first few weeks of term I was busy with a commission (is it still a commission if you commission yourself?).

Now I can step back and work out what I want to do next.

– I’m not sure if the V&A are doing Inspired By any more so there’s no rush with the dragon pot but I still want to finish it

– There are always more Maps

Party of the 1st part: (1-13)

On Saturday I spent an angst free afternoon fiddling around with bits of paper and clip frames. There were few expectations and varied out comes Read the rest of this entry »

Frustrations

Printing hasn’t been gaining particularly smoothly recently and the frustrations have been piling up on a number of different levels. Here’s a look at two projects that haven’t gone strictly according to plan. Read the rest of this entry »

Dried Frog Pills?

I’m running a bit a head of the other students in the Wood Cut class so I wanted to have ago at some other images. Something simple and straight forward. Read the rest of this entry »
