Its Saturday …

February 21, 2015

Today is Saturday and I look forward to a busy long weekend! But first I look back to a relief printing class at a gallery here in Reading.  It follows a recent drawing class and I was assured that I am no longer a beginner I would learn a lot and of course meet other printmakers which is always a good thing!

However, what I did fail to remember is that the gallery is cold; very cold. While I had learned tricks over the last few weeks to keep warm; talking, for instance with tea clasped in my hands is a good way and wearing layers of clothes too, neither conducive to getting work done, but as I mentioned before that isn’t always the reason for a lesson!

Unfortunately, the lino was not so obliging, so while I did my tricks to get warm, my work of art spent much time balanced on a radiator.

So the little piece (already flawed;  the bike, I see is missing a vital piece of its structure )  that I began last week and hoped to take to Margate on Sunday may not get finished.

    Loved the imagery you created with words. The lino-cut was very attractive too. Thanks for sharing.
