The week that was.....

I went back to art class and warmed up with a few figure studies,a chat with my new classmates and some colour mixes(as you do!) Had a coffee mid morning from Momento...damned barista called me "Madam'..!








Then I came home to some amazing weather and decided to mosaic the top of the concrete waters. The tanks are sunken and only one ugly top is visible but I have been itching to do this for years..so I started.
 See how ugly it is?! You would DEFINITELY want to do something about that eyesore!

 Look at me, all organised and everything!'

This was the design I had decided on and I was mapping it out...but I changed it all on site and I will take a photo once the weather improves and I can grout it. Right now it is under a tarp, protected from the rain and SNOW. Yes, Snow. The fist snowfall in my area in over 30 years. OK, so it was only a little sneeze of a snow, but it counts ├žos it's Damned cold right now!!!!






This was the sunrise last Tuesday.Is that not just a wonderfully, peace full scene? It made my day.


And finally, it had to happen, but I rammed a brand new, sharp  woodcut blade into the top of my finger whilst performing a dangerous linocut move.MAN, it hurt and it bled rather impressivly too. I am reviewing my safety technique with the tools and the benchhook is in place and in use. Ow. It hurt ,but not as much as my pride when Charles  said "I told you so".......And he had, not 5 minutes beforehand. Double ouch but lesson learned. You don't need a photo of that.
