Treasures Lost and Found

Happy finds in my mouse and squirrel ridden loft

Serious demolition has begun in the studio. Half the building is down to bare studs. The chore that I was most dreading – cleaning out the loft space – is pretty much complete. There is little that can’t be done when you put a mask on your face and your mind to that which seems insurmountable. It was disgusting up there. But lo and behold, even though I thought every last thing was going to find it’s way to the dump or a bonfire, I was wrong.

I knew my old prints of many moons ago were there, but I dared not hope they’d be anything salvageable. There were several old portfolios, all zippered up and miracle of miracles, un-infested. What a great surprise I got when I finally hauled the portfolios down and opened them up. The contents within were pristine.

I’m pretty sure the litho at left was done when I lived in NY and worked at the Art Student’s League. That would’ve been over 30 years ago

And I am itching to work

It’s almost time to hibernate in the studio for the winter. I am so looking forward to it. There’s a print project to do, and lots of half baked work sitting around screaming to be finished. So, stay tuned for new work to be posted in the coming months!
