Or perhaps it’s been more than a week? Time slips by and I can’t always remember where I am supposed to be on the map of whatever month it is.
Oh well…I have some photos of that road roller print exhibition I went to see. I do know several printmakers who have used heavy machinery to print images, but I believe this a first locally.
The artists “mixed it up” a little, using lino, wood-cut and collograph as their media.
And the artists, wearing their roller-printed T shirts.Yes, that’s the machine they used.
I was having a conversation, cyber-style, the other day about baking for Christmas festivities. Something I used to do, but have not done for years..
When I lived in London I used to bake mince pies to take in to share at work Of course, when it’s dark and snowy one feels more inclined to spend time at a hot oven! Here, in 30+Celsius? Not so much.
But going in to work one night with a basket smelling like a distillery (my mince pies and fruit cakes were always liberally laced with whiskey or rum!) the woman next to me on the bus sniffed appreciatively. I opened the linen wrap and offered her one. She wanted to know if there were any vacancies at my work!
At that time I wore a dark red corduroy coat with a hood and colleagues took to calling me Little Red Riding Hood. A bit like this
Perhaps I’ll make a tray of mince pies this year…
But I will NOT wear a coat with a hood!
