are greetings cards so tricky to photograph? Not helped by the meagre natural light on this heavy grey day. Might have another go tomorrow, but if you have any tips please let me know.

Mulled wine

For this latest addition to my lino print Caribou herd  I have used the rich reds and oranges that remind me of the heavy scent of mulled wine. Christmas must be coming...

I haven’t picked up a paint brush in about ten months. I found the low level of interest in the prints of my watercolours in my online shop a bit disheartening. I think my style is probably a bit too traditional for many people and my very chic italian friend has told be that my taste for heavy rough watercolour paper is very old fashioned (she being a successful acrylics and inks artist herself). It’s also highly likely that I am just not good at it. 

So I was quite surprised to sell copies of  these three paintings and greetings cards from some of my others at the two shows I've done recently. Just wish I had remembered to take Two Starlings along too!  This has encourage me to do a little more painting now that its getting a bit chilly in my print workshop (also known as “that bloody freezing garage”).

Art Market 7th November

Just to report that I had a great day at the Art Market in Holmfirth last Sunday. A great venue, superb organisation and a good stream of people with a genuine and informed interest in handmade and crafted work. A really rewarding day all round.  

I thoroughly recommend a visit to the next Art Market which is on Sunday 14th November.
