Half a Yard of Memories – 4th May 2020

Here we are several weeks into lockdown, will I remember how to drive the car?

Lots of walking and gardening and I’m pleased to say that being in the studio has become part of my day and each day I spend some time there, taking small steps.

My current plate, “Half a yard of Memories” developed

Half done

Fully done and then sealed and left for a couple of days for it to be fully dry

And then printed

I dry them under weights as I need the paper to be truly flat, here I have used Somerset 250gsm. They are now wrapped in tissue until they are fully dry so that I can fold them into books.

In between times I have made some cards. I just love the way that the table is full of stuff and then it gradually gets down to a small pile of 9 cards with grey envelopes.

And one of the joys of gardening, Cornus Kousa “Eddies White Wonder” in the full sunshine
