I've created this 12" square giclee print, H is for Hug, for valentines Day. Two Ellipses having a hug. Handy too for sending virtual hugs to friend during lockdown.
Well, nothing is new is it? But after creating an artwork a day during the 1st lockdown I haven't managed to produce much at all towards the end of last year. But I have been mulling over ideas for 2021. Inspired by a phrase in Michael Hampton's Unshelfmarked [Uniform Press] I've been inclined to combine my photography, painting and interest in graphic design in some way for some time and I have included text in my paintings from time to tine anyway. It does mean that the finished pieces will ultimately be digital prints but I'm hoping [cue that phrase] Taxanomically Awkward. The image above is just something I knocked up to illustrate the idea for this post but I may stick to the double spread idea. Anyway, Happy New Year, if such a thing is possible!
While waiting for paint to dry I have been pondering using artworks on other surfaces and creating hybrid paint/digital works.
Here's the PDF for week 10. I have been updating the website as well. There are purchase links on the new Prints page and I have changed the Paintings page as well, giving each painting their own page to display larger images.
Another week gone. It's a tragedy turning into a farce... Here's this week's PDF
