"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."

Running Around

Its been a week of running around. Last Sunday we had a drive up the valley to Hebden Bridge to collect the unsold works from the Summer Print Exhibition. It was a very pleasant surprise to find that of the eight prints submitted, four had sold. In a group exhibition, where my work has to compete with that from a lot of other printmakers I would have been happy to have sold one. On wednesday it was over to the Ryburn Gallery in Sowerby Bridge with a copy of the Brown Trout print to replace one that had sold there. This has been a very popular print, there are only two copies remaining, one framed and one unframed both now at the Ryburn Gallery. Yesterday we had a trip to Kendal, to deliver two prints that have been shortlisted for the final selection process for a new exhibition organised by the Brewery Arts Centre.

So not much time for work, just this large rectangle in a nice shade of pale blue. A new print intended for a new (for me) gallery, I will shortly have my work available in the Leeds Craft Centre and Design Gallery but more of that later.
