This week has been about designing and finally getting some studio fixes done to make my life easier down at the studio. I am more excited than I ever thought I would be about a switch. Isn't it beautiful? It is about as old as me and would have been used in some complicated bit of electronics to do with jet engines according to the very clever electrician who installed it for me. All I know is that is now enables me to have the suction running on my screen printing bed only when I need it as opposed to all the time. Saving energy! Yay! And my ears (quite a loud vacuum pump)- double yay!
I love feeling sun on my skin and did some garden clearing and planted some (slightly late) garlic out.
Here is a design I painted onto a plate a few years ago now for my parent's ever growing collection of plates displayed on the wall in the kitchen. I've always liked the design and feel it could work well as a screen print. The goose is in fact one of our own. We kept geese for years and the breeding pair we had grew to a ripe old age, but sadly died a few years ago. Now Sion and Sian will be immortalised in ink.
