I have had an enforced day at home today as my son is off school poorly so I have been catching up on a bit of planning and as usual ended up surfing the net. I visited the Country Living Spring Fair website and had a moment of nervous excitement as I discovered my details had been added; it was only my name and address but it really doesn't take much! It made me realise how near the event actually is and whilst I am looking forward to it I still have a huge amount of work to do. It's so difficult to judge how much work to take as well; probably dependant on what will fit in the car; as I would hate to not take enough but must try and select the right things. I am also going to order a new set of stationery and packaging with my fab new(ish) logo, designed by the very talented Michael Barrett aka emelbi, so everything works together on the stand.
I am looking forward to finishing some new pieces off when I get back in the studio....pears! I started studying these before the Christmas rush kicked in and discovered some interesting new ways of printing off my screens coated in thickened dye using simple paper resists and printing and overprinting. I just need to apply the devore paste and a little more dye and I will share them with you.
Before I go here are a few interesting blogs that I discovered today:
