Käthe And The Clothes Horse

I printed up and the two silkscreens I have been working on for the last week or so. I’m doing some editions from drawings I made of some of my favourite artists starting with Suzanne Valadon and Käthe Kollwitz. They’re small enough to print at home, if they were large I’d have booked the vacuum press at Swansea Print Workshop. I improvised a drying rack with my clothes horse. It worked perfectly well. I’m making a series of these to take to the London Art Car Boot Fair in a couple of weeks, I’m aiming to do eight artists. I’ve never taken my work to anything like this before so I don’t know what to expect. Exciting though.

We have some family sprogs on a sleepover tonight so I made a huge amount of pancakes. There seems to be no limit to the amount of pancakes that small children can eat. They like weird fillings. I’m old school – lemon and sugar will do me. The sprogs however are far more adventurous – cockles, duck and maple syrup went into one, duck, honey and lemon into another. And they want more for breakfast!

    How satisfying it must be to see them all hanging there. Lovely.

    Love the print! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that you’re able to sell off the majority of what you create.
    What a crazy combination of fillings. Have those kids been watching fusion cooking programs? 🙂

      Thanks. I hope so too 😀. It’s weird. Mostly they’re quite conservative with food but they will put almost anything in a pancake.
