Thanks for calling in.
I wanted to thank all those of you
who left messages of concern and love yesterday.
I read them all to Dave, and we decided to listen for once.
Watch this space...
Pleased to report that Dave is feeling much better than yesterday.
Easy does it and slowly does it though.
I spent the day with good and loyal friends, staff and family, preparing for the week of retreats.
Everything is ready and waiting,
and I’m actually really looking forward to switching off for a week and spending some quality time with some good people.
But this evening, I really do want to do some art,
to calm my troubled mind.
And I think I will end this canvas week on a
Now where was I yesterday...
Yellow canvas and town stencil.
Zesty Zing spread out with a brayer....
and allowed to dry.
Ink up the Town Stencil
one of my personal favourites
with Black Archival ink -
Lay the wet side of the stencil on the yellow canvas board,
and then run it through your mangle of choice.
Mine is an E-Bosser.
Plates which work from the bottom up:
Replace the stencil,
and tape it to the board.
Now, every single piece of kit I possess
has gone to the rugby club for the retreat.
I have found a use for my Gym Club Membership Card!!!
Let it be noted that this is far and away THE most expensive
Grunge Paste spreader that ever lived.
Found a fork too....
to deposit said grunge Paste at the base of the houses,
then gently drag through the houses,
randomly and not necessarily perfectly,
with THE most expensive paste spreader known to man.
Mind you, happy to have finally found a use for it....
Remove stencil and tape...
Hope you like it!
The sale has gone very well,
so that means loads of you now have loads of blank canvases.

take a good pic of it and email it to me.
