Been matting and framing this week getting a piece ready for my first contest of 2011 it had to be in by 4:30 on Friday afternoon the exhibition is in March so now I have to wait to see if I am accepted for it. I just love waiting for this type of thing so I have started on some other pieces for another group exhibition at the end of March.

Another week down that 2 now

I was asked to look after a couple of teens last week, seeing that they were on school holidays and there parents had to work. I was not overly keen on the idea as I wanted to do some work and they did not want a babysitter, so I called the whole thing a printmaking workshop and we all had a great time. I got some work done and had fun showing them printmaking and they got to make prints and had so much fun with it that they wanted to come and do it all again this week too.

First Week of the year

Well that week went fast one down and 51 more to come. Spent most of the week trying to work in my studio but it is small and over the xmas holidays it has been use as extra place to put stuff so when I came to work in it the flow was all wrong and I felt like I was falling over myself, so I had a mad fit and moved every thing out and gave it a good clean and put it all back in the way I can use it and it feels great to work init again.

Been playing and looking for acrylic and house products that will work as grounds and resists that will work with the nontoxic metal salts etching on aluminium.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all, I would like to thank all the people that have taken the time to read and follow my blog. The end of last year came up real fast and I had projects unfinished and not started but this is a hole New Year completely unmarred and a clean canvas for all.

I have also taken the time to make a list of some of the goals I would like to achieve this year and the first is to keep my Blog up to date more often and try to make it more interesting for the people that take the time to read it.

I went in to my studio to clean it up a bit, a bit of a slow start in the morning and found my self playing with the inks instead of cleaning ended up make a couple of monotypes.
So with all that said here is the first monotype of the year
