and more drypoints....

 some more dypoint dabbling ! These two are all of 2'' square. I think I will put these in mounts although they were originally intended as images for hand printed cards ! The bottom two are 5x4" . Forgive the poor photography ! They are all on white somerset paper !

having fun with a drypoint ...and a few musings !

I've been really busy painting up prints etc just recently so decided to award myself a few days off to fiddle and also to make those new blocks that have been niggling away in my head !
So basically I've had a really good few days ...always amazes me how ideas for new work come buzzing the more ideas you think of...puts you in a creative state of mind ! (sounds like a new song title !)
Also ,at the end of next week I have a stall at a local food and craft street market and I was thinking I could do with a new ,easily affordable range of work (totally different to my normal ,extremely time intensive  and hence more expensive, collagraphs) for these kind of situations and also to sell online.
I have, therefore ,been having lots of fun with very simple drypoints...a real treat and a release from the endless elbow grease of collagraphs !
And here are the results...still to be finished...

I think this might be the finished style of my dabble in gift tags ! Ribbon or rafia ? Not sure !!!!

Off to the Seapictures Gallery,Clare !

 A new selection of work delivered to the Seapictures Gallery in the lovely village of Clare ,Suffolk. Hopefully they will go well as the last delivery all sold in the first week !!! ( I f only life was always like that !)
It is like a "sweet shop" for me as it's full of inspiring maritime work in all different forms and styles...including some very interesting contemporary work. If you are ever in the area have a look as the village also has some excellent places to eat and a wonderful Aladdin's cave of an antique cum junk store !!!!
