Cat + detail from collagraph
Also, I am waiting for (above: detail from Print, featured in earlier post) my SLR digital camera to recharge so I can finish my 'documentation' of stuff I have been doing of late.
Some of it, is from before I went into hospital for the neuro surgery - as in the
which I had signed up for, ages ago with Sarah Bodmin of the University of Central England. It's been taking place over the past five or six years and I thought I'd give it a go. I started playing around with thoughts and ideas about 3 months before the deadline but didnt buckle down to physically getting on with it until about 6 weeks before it was due.
Then of course I began to realise that it was going to take far more physical effort that I had anticipated. I thought seriously about it and because I did not know, the extent, nor the duration, of the increased pain and incapacity - I thought it best to 'resign' from the project. I hated doing that = I think it's the first time I have ever had to do it but it seemed best. It was for an edition of 100 bookmarks.
Here's a link to the final bookmarks project on the University of the West of England's website
As in the water color monotypes - which were the first thing I did following my adventure with the neurosurgeon.
