"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Next Project

Printing is well underway on my next Linocut, intended to be one of my submissions to the Open Exhibition at the Royal Cambrian Academy in January. The subject is St Govans Chapel in Pembrokeshire, an old sketching haunt from my student days. The print is based on a watercolour painting of the chapel that I posted about 12 months ago.

There can't be many four year olds who know what a baren is and how to use one. She just doesn't have the strength to press down hard enough.
