I finished my Fleeting Moments piece today for the Colours of Africa outdoor exhibition.I had to make something light weight but also able to endure a months worth of weather so I hope it will stand up to the weathering process. It is quite large about 1.6 metres square so i suspect the wind will have quite a role to play in how it survives. It was a bit of a dilemna making it,because how much time do you spend on something that will disintegrate. Anyway it is off to Belgium and we shall see!
My eldest daughter Celeste and I have been designing "dolls" that will form part of my "France" exhibition. We drew the figures and then made linocuts and hopefully will have them made into kits by Fiona Wright's The Stitching Project so that they will come ready to stitch with threads included.At the moment they are still in the try out stage- they are both exactly the same size but because I put a bottom in the female shape she grew a bit taller. We have to think of a name for our project- any ideas anyone? I also used brown printing ink as I did not have any black ink on hand and I don't especially like the brown ink but I was anxious to see how they would stitch up.
