Cake, More Cake And A Head

Such a busy day. Putting up the new exhibition at Swansea Print Workshop this morning. It’s a gorgeous show of miniature prints from all over the world called Leftovers V. Then Husb and I went down for a much needed session on the allotment, loads of work to do but some harvesting too – potatoes, mint, chard, rhubarb, plums and cooking apples. Fresh food for some days to come. And on top of that, baking cakes for the exhibition tomorrow. We’re opening early evening with a traditional Welsh tea with bara brith, Victoria Sandwich, Welsh cakes and for the first time, I made a gluten-free vegan carrot cake. I’m caked out!

No time for sketching so I’m putting up one of the drawings I did at our life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop on Thursday. This older male model has a very distinctive face that lends itself to bold mark-making with black and white conte crayon onto a rough brown parcel paper.

        Awh, it’s nice to know the doodle was looked at! I’ll pass the word along to it’s owner, since he’s no longer at our home. Glad it was a good opening! The poster was lovely. Hope the allotment treated you well!

        It was lovely. We had a family – friendly opening to encourage a wider audience for the prints. Had loads of stuff from the allotment and dug over 2 raised beds. Fantastic. I love digging.
