totally unexpected

A couple of days away from the studio isn’t unusual but this week has been a bit all over the place with the bank holidays making it feel like a Sunday for several days in a row. So this morning I couldn’t remember why I’d left out two marked up pieces of leftover stripey material at approx 6in square when I don’t have any mounts with apertures that size. It was puzzling me for ages until eventually I recalled thinking I might try some ink drawings mounted onto beveled edge plywood blocks. So I spent the morning adding the black and white ink marks, preparing the blocks, and then sticking on the finished drawings. They were weighted down over lunch before cutting to size afterwards. And here we have them. They just need a bit of varnish to finish off but otherwise a productive day’s work, although not what I was planning to do today obviously.
