Turn 1 Pink low res    TURN.

I have been printing the reduction lino block this week – ended up with just 3 colours. Enough !   Will now find some more faces to print, while I’m on a roll .

The seaweed pictures are progressing, but I realised that I need to be     working on stuff for the FIRST exhibition, which is Portrait, at Espacio Gallery. That is coming up at the beginning of April.

I have been cutting a lino block, for the ‘Turn’ image – a reduction lino print with 5 colours. Well, that’s the plan !  I  was thrilled to see a rather ghostly image of how the first colour will look, when I turned the block over and held it up to the light.

Happy New Year.

???????????????????????????????In september we visited my brother in Baltimore, S.W. Ireland. Inspiration abounds on the beach there – beautiful rock formations, rounded pebbles and of course SEAWEEDS ! These lovely colours and shapes are the basis of some new work, that’s been simmering in my subconscious for a little while.

The past 2 days I have been cutting stencils/masks for layering in monotype printing. Well, that’s the theory ! Going to have a go on my press when we go up to Worcestershire in the coming week.

As usual I shall endeavour to post more on this blog – but I don’t DO resolutions. I shall also read more of other people’s blogs, because I do like them.

studio 2014 seaweed stencils I like to see what inspires and spurs others on.


I have two group exhibitions on the horizon, both Espacio Gallery – so need to make a start !


HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all – this coming year may you have love, health, wealth and inspiration .
