Feast or famine.

July 16, 2010

Boy am I on a roll…..I hate it when I get this busy but it is so rewarding when efforts pay off.  In May I sent 2 more etchings off to the A4Print competition in Cornwall, and just heard they’ve been accepted for the exhibition – possibly going on to New Zealand next spring. So that’s a great reward. Judging is in late August.

I am now in the middle of a design job for some Art Consultants in the States, who tracked me down, somehow. They needed someone with textile design experience, and influenced by the Middle East, to do interiors work for a new Abu Dhabi Hotel. Another Hotel, what a surprise !  I first heard from them , over a month ago, but things went quiet while finances were sorted out. A couple of days ago I got the go-ahead to get on with it…and now speed is the essence.  The bad news is I have to finish it in two weeks.

What else…oh yes….I’m also a 4th Showcase winner on Artslant. So in the winners enclosure twice this year. Right, enough boasting for one day, but I am just so pleased !

I had infact just started to get stuck into some collagraphs to do with ‘growth/decay’, a theme  that I first started working on a couple of years ago – so that’s on hold for now.   As I said…watch this space.

I am very pleased to say that my two new etchings (Cairo interior and Stairs to nowhere) have been shortlisted for the Cork Street Open, London.  Now there’s a boost.
