Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible

We are in the process of 'seamlessly' transferring internet provider. In practice this means we will be without internet access for the next few(?) days. I look forward with catching up with people as soon as possible

Painting again

I really enjoyed making the abstracts for my ALAW alphabet. It seems a long time since I painted anything. I seem to do much more drawing these days. So I decided to play a bit more using my photos and sketches of French mausoleums as source material.

Earlier this week I received a zine, ‘Guess who’s not cooking dinner?’, from Helen Malone. It’s a companion piece to ‘Guess who’s coming for dinner?’.  It has made me think more about exploring ideas through zines.

There aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything. I wonder if I can combine zines, paintings and French cemeteries in one project.

First letters made

I’ve decided to make more of these these small abstracts ending up with a a series of 26 which will cycle through a limited colour palette of deep violet, Prussian blue, phthalo green and white.

I’m going to scan and print them in pairs and I’ll cut the letters out of the squares so that when they are finally bound together the texture of the page behind will show through.

So far I’ve done 4!
