new print...the hare and hen

this a final sketch for a new block,unsure whether it will be a drypoint or collagraph ! It will be for the Hare and Hen gallery at Burnham Deepdale North Norfolk. A really interesting gallery cum workshop of the potter Philippa  Lee who has kindly agreed to stock my cards and prints. It has lots of interesting art and craft and some very good bird books!

spent the evening framing work ready to take to byard art gallery in Cambridge. Always seems to take ages...I never allow enough time ...and why is there always a black fleck inside the frame that never shows itself until the back is all taped up !!!

by the way have really loved making this experience for me...and have already found lots of inspirational printmaking/artist /craftsman fellow bloggers to follow ! !! A big thank you to those who have already got in touch, hope to hear from lots more !

just delivered some new cards to the Southwold Gallery,financially producing cards not really worth it but there is terrific satisfaction in seeing my work as a card all packaged in their cellophane envelopes! looking forward to making a start on the new drypoint idea ...just need to finish some work for a gallery and a commission...aiming to start next week ...exciting!

am developing a new string to my bow! 2x2 " drypoints that I will produce without additional painting to be used as handmade cards and mini prints in series or themes,perhaps as boxed collections....mind is swimming...incredible how a germ of an idea can take hold...will post soon as there's something to show!
