What a headline, doesn't sound a bit exciting and it wasn't just hard graft although I am sure that I must have found at least one thing I had been looking for although there are still two copper plates with text on them that are mysteriously missing. I threw out a bit of stuff so that free'd up some space. This IS a small studio really but at least I have one. Some people don't have a dedicated space to work in and that must be awful.
I found THAT copper plate with the text on it. It was 'where I'd left it" i.e., just outside the wooden hut with a load of turpentine soaked newspaper on top of it. I'm lucky it hadn't gone rusty.
