And Flowers Wednesday

The promised photos of the experiments I did with the flowers from yesterday. Just a change of colour or a different background alters the whole look of the print. I'm not sure which one I like best. A bit of daylight for the photography would have helped too, but (working) beggars can't be choosers, eh?

Flowers Tuesday

I've been hard at it on my day off work, determined to get a print cut and finished. I based it on some of my paintings, which is probably quite apparent. I did a load of prints in black, which I may hand colour later. I also got a few onto interesting backgrounds, but I haven't photographed those yet. More pics soon.

Back to it

Once again I begin with apologies for my absence. This is becoming a bit dull of me lately. It's been a while since I've had the opportunity for a flurry of activity (I keep getting called into work on my days off), but at last I'm on a roll. Today at least. I've been making some ACEOs, as well as popping out for lunch and spending time photographing. I want a medal now, or one of those little trophies you put on the mantlepiece. Oh and I'll need a mantlepiece too, while you're at it.

So without further ado, here's the fruit of this latest Tuesday off.

I've mounted and framed them this time. They're the little cheap frames from Ikea, with mounts that I cut myself, so it's a really inexpensive, yet pretty way to display them. Next time I go to Ikea I think I'll buy a whole bunch of these and start selling the ACEOs fully presented. I think they'd look lovely on a desk or bedside table, and I reckon I could do the whole lot with postage for about £10 or £11. I don't think that's bad for an original artwork.
