…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.
I can’t tell you how glad I am that you have decided not to try and finish ‘Tobias’ in a hurry — he needs better.
I’ve been out of touch for several days, but am glad to hear that the title of the annunciation is touched — I did say that I thought that some other title than the two you proposed might be right — it is!
This brings fondest greetings from Alan and me and very best wishes for the pv tomorrow evening. I wish we could have been with you. I look forward to seeing some installation photos (and of the merry crowd!).
Jack Sprat enjoying himself–you too!
Have a well deserved rest! Good luck on Thursday, I look forward to seeing some
Thanks Derek. I’ll be posting news of the opening shortly.
Glad to hear you’re taking it easy for a bit. Jack is a true Daoist, I see. Both photos are pleasing compositions in their own right.
