It was promising to be a strange week last week, you know, when a bunch of disappointing things happen, but you just get on with it. Then we lost my Mother in Law on Wednesday, which was a shock, even though she was chronically ill in many ways. She had a complicated life which actually makes memories of her more desperately sad.
So things are not as usual around here. In between dealing with all the things one has to deal with, which naturally will go on for a while, I have done some work, which as usual keeps me going; not a lot, but here is some of it. It’s for Rain and Sun, the latest artist book.
This is actually quite large, about 130 cms wide, as it’s a double page spread with extra fold out pieces to make a panorama.
Above and below, details, but with the sides folded in.
And below, two Gelli plate prints used in two more pages. The background fabric is actually a drop cloth I cut up.
Below, the piece has moved on, with birds added. Stitch and beads will be added too.
Keeping up the gecko theme, these two are looking at the sun. The pages have grown in size, what’s new there I wonder? They are about A2 sized.
