Where do I begin ??
Its been so long since I posted here that I almost don't know where to begin. I was very busy the 2 or 3 weeks that took me up to the end of June because I knew I was going into hospital on the 30th for an operation on my spine called a "lumbar laminectomy". Sounds more like some kind of process that would be undertaken on a thick plank of wood to go on your kitchen worktop.
Anyway I had a print the collagraph with the little figure on a horse and the leopard silhouette. I wasn't too sure how soon again I would be fit to do any printmaking so I had to get that piece resolved so that it would be ready to go into the "silver exhibition" for FDPW's touring exhibition. I already had a piece in a frame for it but I had never been that happy with it and so worked on this 'replacement' piece..
After all the weeks of work on it, in the end I had to use some hand coloring with some water soluble pastel pencils to get it looking right. BUT - I got it done and that was the main thing.
