A linocut from 2014…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s unconnected words are: tremble, schist, candelabra, gum, onions, and thermometer.

It seems a while since I forced you to look at one of my linocut prints – here’s one, I don’t think you’ve seen it before…

WP F DSCN3986I suppose I should really fill this space below the print with a bit of text – it’s expected; people generally would rather read things than look at puzzling pictures, but I won’t bother explaining this piece of  work – it really is pretty obvious what it’s about…
I could of course mention how big it is, just to give you a feel of what it would be like if it were hanging on your home or office wall. (‘if it were’ I always think that it should be ‘if it was’ hanging on your wall – I just looked up this grammatical dilemma, and there was a lot of stuff about the ‘second conditional’ for first and third person singulars and something called the subjunctive case, but I soon got a bit frightened and ran away – I think I’ll stick with ‘if it were’ because I’ve heard posh people say it…) Anyway, this print is on a sheet of A4 nice quality drawing paper. Since doing it I have discovered fine Japanese paper to do my lino printing on – oh, it has a lovely surface, and it’s so nice to work with…
There… that’s plenty of text to balance the look of the page… this has been what you might call chatty banter…

  1. Brilliant and I like your chatty banter (worthy of Sir Humphrey himself).
