Unpacking boxes….

This is now the 7th move in 6 years. Two of those have been to different countries and it is at times like this I wish I were a diamond salesman. Artists just do not travel light. I met a diamond salesman once and the tools of his trade were contained in one tiny briefcase. Back in the dark ages, the school’s careers advisor failed to bring diamond selling to my attention, but then, it seemed, there were only three suitable careers for girls, teaching, secretarial or nursing. If I had chosen diamond selling there would have been 20 fewer boxes, 2 drawing tables and a book case less to move.

But here we are for a while and it’s back to work, blogs,drawing, painting, printmaking and book preparation and some exciting explorations into letterpress printing….
