Change of routine this week

It's been strange this week changing my routine from spending each day in my studio printing and re-printing and then working on Photoshop selecting, adjusting, cropping... my photographs of Route 66 trying to decide which ones to include in the November exhibition.

I have so much to write in my evaluation for the Arts Council - it's going to take a long time.

However, it's been good to see staff, students and the work they have produced at College while I've been away.

Selecting photographs and printing

I've been reviewing and selecting photos for an exhibition entitled "Route 66 and Beyond" to be held at Light House Media Centre, Wolverhampton, West Midlands. It opens on Thursday 22 November, which seems a long way off at the moment but will probably arrive much quicker than I'd like.

Printmaking has also been occupying a large amount of my time. I've been printing some of the photopolymer gravure plates of Route 66 images and also trying out some in monoprinting.

The artichoke plants, tree peony and other structural plants outside the studio have also been demanding my attention and I've been drawing them and trying out different ways of making prints of them.
