Autumn print tidy-up...

I had got a plan to do a whole lot of printing this week (that may be a never-ending plan now I think about it!) but then I opened up the drawers where I store my prints and suddenly I have a new plan...

Over the last few weeks/months of rummaging, storing, finding they have somehow dis-organised themselves into complete randomness.

I need to think of a good way to organise them all though - should I store them by animal type? (cats, then dogs, or do armadillos come first - and what do I do with multiple animal crowds? Sort by the biggest in size or the top predator?).  Alphabetically, size order, oldest to newest.... I think this is going to stretch over more than a day...

It is a never ending thing, this sorting as my prints insist on coming out in different sizes and shapes and so cannot be just a stack.  And there are quite a few of them sitting here waiting for new homes or a trip to the framers!



Such a lovely time of year - here I am sitting in the Autumn sunshine - what could be better?

Time to take to the woods, check out the leaves changing colour and forming slightly mushy piles to kick through, and catch the lovely rays of Autumn sunshine before we decide to hibernate in front of the fire for the winter (we have already started practising sitting in front of the fire though, just in case we had forgotten how!).

I've had a couple of commissions in the past weeks and now feel like I am re-emerging into the world, ready to be out doors as much as I can (when it isn't raining of course...) and ready to turn a few of my own ideas into lino prints.  Have I made enough lino prints yet?  Nope.
