…I’ve decided to have a little rest from work.
Rather than risk compromising the last painting I’d had in mind for the exhibition (Tobias and the Angel) I’ve decided instead to take a break from my easel. See a few friends, run some errands, walk the dog and tidy up the studio. I need to wind down before the gallery Private View, otherwise there’s the likelihood that I’ll be too tired to enjoy the moment. This afternoon I printed editions of the two Saint Kevin lino-cuts I prepared a couple of months ago, and when they were done I decided to call a halt to any more work. I’ll be back in the studio soon enough after Touch has opened, and so now is the time to relax.
I found the following photograph to post here . It’s the solitary sunflower that grew in the garden last year and provided the model for those in Touched and Kevin and the Sunflowers.
