As I Write...


I watch the numbers scrolling round on my new counter...I find it amazing that in less than 24 hours, lots of people from all over the world have visited, read and disappeared again... you are very welcome, visitors... Isn't the internet wonderful?

A quick glimpse of the first of the linoprints. It takes a while to get used to a new press, so I'm still learning, and given that I'm expecting visitors next week, I don't really have the time to spend with it. And it doesn't help that I chose to start with a piece of the ultrasuede I was talking about...not the easiest of cloths to work with (what was I thinking...). I am, however, looking forward to the visit, the closest we'll get to a holiday this year, friends from Inverness whom we miss greatly.

So, doubtless I'll spend a fair amount of time tidying up, a bit of cooking in advance, perhaps, and not a lot of time to make art. I think that's fair enough, though... I dreamed last night that I hadn't cleaned up since last Christmas, and that the night was Christmas Eve...but it's not that bad, honest! In fact, it's good enough for me to think that perhaps I could pull more screen prints; the first are batching, but we ran out of time... these are big screens, and I really need help to pull them effectively. The resulting cloth looks interesting though...stay tuned...

That counter is hypnotic - you'll never get any work done!!!

African overtones and all - I'll be interested to see what comes of this piece.
