I've been working on some blog changes over the last couple of days. The layout, colour, function, etc. all needed an overhaul and the addition of Blogger's ability to introduce additional pages as tags was a timely addition.
I'm now putting some original work and some giclee prints on sale pages here to make it easy for people to purchase all in one place, more or less. I'll be adding a few more pages when I can and am looking at other header options. I guess its a bit like spring cleaning. Once you do one room, you have to keep going cause all the rest look dingy!
Meanwhile I am starting to wrap my mind seriously around some research and experimentation for a series of work. I have applied for a grant, but regardless of whether I obtain it or not, the work will still go ahead. I am pushing in the direction of a more intensive study of gyotaku printing and have just joined as a member of the Nature Printing Society which offer week long workshops each year in fish and plant printing in the USA. By browsing their website and resources, (and ordering some) I have lots of ideas to keep me inspired well into the future.
This study was done a couple of weeks ago as I experimented with another batik background this time seeing how it worked with a portrait. No, its not a fish, but has a mermaid-like theme to it.
