Have continued with etchings for upcoming exhibition over the last few days. Some agony and ecstacy with this. One just didn’t come out the same as what was in my head. Played with some ideas that didn’t seem to help so let it sit, had a few wines for mothers day, and then started a new design which glory be, turned out better than expectations. Who needs to go to a fun park for a rollercoaster ride.

Also spent a little time on a two copper plate colour etching. Very pleased with result. I usually use a cardboard plate and monoprinting techniques to add colour to my etched copper plate. I will spent more time and money working with two or more copper plates as well in future.

Have two works in group exhibitions at moment.

Dreaming Inside a reduction linoprint is in the Mini Print Biennial 2018 In Northern Island. The exhibition showcases the work of 140 artists from over 30 countries displaying a wide range of printmaking techniques and exceptional printmaking skills. The exhibition will run from May 9th - July 27th, 2018 You can see more about this exhibition at https://www.flickr.com/photos/164534855@N07/

Washing Machine For My Mind is a pen ink and coloured pencil drawing in The Red House (of whom I am a member) group exhibition in a local gallery here in Adelaide.

Now back to work.
