Lino peelings and bits everywhere...



I'm back at it...

The floor feels like a gravel path now, what with walking about barefooted in this tropical June weather.  It would be silly to clear up as it will just happen again.

So far I have cut out about 500 raindrops, some waves, another little Bristol thing and some circles.

I am contemplating a snowstorm, a lemur, three crows standing on the ground and a puffin on a cliff top.  Oh, and I do keep looking at some fabric that seems too plain and could be jazzed up a bit using the medium of lino printing, but maybe I have printed on enough of our house already?  How can you tell when you have reached that point?

Hay on Wye made out of lino

It was that book festival thingy a couple of weeks ago, in Hay on Wye the town of books - I went, it was great and was mostly an ice cream festival as far as I remember, but I did make this little lino print of the town, with the amazing half derelict castle on the hill above...

Little Hay on Wye lino print is right here...

Getting ready for our Arts Trail in May...


I've started framing a few pictures up to show at our local Arts Trail in South Bristol, which is coming up soon :)

The Southbank Arts Trail has been going for over a decade now, so quite a fixture and also a brilliant sociable affair - as always I have several new prints forming in my mind which I would love to have ready in time, but we will see....

The photo shows my print "Black Cat devouring a City".

The dogs are back!!



I've let some of my dog lino prints loose in my Etsy Shop again!!  They are well house trained, despite appearances I promise :)

...and if you are a dog owner I am sure you recognise the odd bit of dog behaviour here!

Prints and chatter







I've been fiddling.
Popping lino prints in frames, popularising the use of purple walls as a backdrop to photos, snapping snaps of said prints in frames and purple walls, you know the kind of thing....

The type of thing that can only be done on a sunny Spring morning.

It's a great pottering way to recover from a really busy start to the year :)

I spent a great few days in Wakefield at The Hepworth Gallery  in March - I love this Gallery!!  I even love its lockers, everything is just a yes!  They also had a fab Print Fair, which is obviously exactly my kind of thing and a great chance to chatter away to hundreds of printy folk for days on end.

New Bristol lino print


Work in progress...

A little skyline of Bristol has been emerging this week...
Hopefully a local would recognise a couple of the buildings, but that handy bridge is all you need to make it 'Bristol'!!

Tomorrow will be editioning day - I've stocked up with paper ready - nothing will stop me....
