Its always the case that I feel over eager to see what the cut plate or etched plate looks like...the first proof:)) ...such anticipation to see what you have to work with...what the image looks like.. As such I only had a tube of red Speedball ink resulting in the second or third(?) part of the process and red proofs....The images are odd and I've noted all the bits I like and dislike; so by the time you read this I'm cutting again.
Summer rains in Brisbane. Lovely time indoors cutting lino pieces; accumulated drawings that took shape as a drawing before bed exercise...Id gotten this idea from a Louise Bourgeois monograph in which she detailed in an interview the many diaries she kept as a way to record her life. Seems like a way to capture both conscious and subconscious...Anyway I'm not disciplined in any way in terms of writing in diaries; I don't write meaningfully I only write to purge and I couldn't keep written ones and a visual one as I often combine the two or even just end up listing things like artists I'm interested in. Oh well being this way - I though id draw directly onto the lino block each night I remembered and cut whenever.... its a good beginning and I'm gradually finding that there are groups of things popping up.. and the series is taking shape. Always a 'series' in things isn't there? :}}
