Springing into spring !

March 10, 2015

Several requirements for small/mini prints set me off carving lino blocks again last month – one went in the post today to the 14th Lessedra World Print Art Annual, Sofia, Bulgaria. I also had to get together a portfolio to submit to the RE at Bankside, which required half a dozen drawings in addition to prints.

Somehow I began drawing Magnolia blossoms & buds, unfurling ferns (again)……………………………………and sprouting potatoes !  . Magnolia reduction lino print 1   ???????????????????????????????

I then began interpreting the images using cut up maps as collage (for an exhibition called Reuse Refuse) Again, like the bees, things are taking on a life of their own, and it’s just what I love about this job ! It’s called inspiration, and no one knows where it will go next.
