On loom printing

Printing residue
Working on the loom. Weaving and printing.
It took a moment to resolve some technical issues, but now I can concentrate on the thump and rhythm of weaving. This is meant to be a test-run - for a series of new works.

For now the 'debris' of the printing process is much more photogenic than the work in progress itself, see below.

Drawings in the sky

Walking my life not star- but tree-gazing: the weather during this dark time of the year has been mild and often sunny, leaving the air and the bare branches of the trees bathed in this soft clear light of the wintry sun.

Traces of light
The trees look like drawn into the sky, it's as if each species had its own handwriting. On my daily walks I captured some as mobile-pics - black&white, sometimes turned into white&black.

Now the weather has become cold and wintry, with a dusting of snow and it's fine to sit in the studio dealing with this machine that I've been loathing.

Otherwise in the studio, play-working on different issues; sort of: "one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration ...".
