My oh my, over 4 years since I last posted anything!!!
Things have taken a different turn since 2015. I have been spending time getting my hands dirty and trying my hand at printmaking, with a focus (so far) on copper plate etching.
This has proved to be the tonic needed after a day earning a living sitting at a computer.
A small group of us met back in 2016 on a copper plate etching class ran by the late Silvana MacLean, and we kept it up making use of the print studio at Gracefield every Wednesday night. Its been a slow and painstaking process trying to develop the skills, it is a process where there are challenges at every stage!
We have a small Group print exhibition in the Gracefield Arts Centre Cafe starting Tuesday 22nd October 2019.
It is warm, it is sunny, so a perfect evening to step from my desk to sit in my garden and watch the little red squirrels go about their squirrely business. And it was a busy evening for the squirrels, I observed 4 individuals – the twins, a different other young one (not a twin) and a different adult (different meaning not Molly). I guess squirrels enjoy a warm sunny evening too, they were certainly enjoying that the trees were bursting into leaf and providing lots of fresh things to eat.
It has been very exciting to see my squirrels my little red squirrels photographs gathered together and on show in the Tolbooth Art Centre.
