Last night was one of those stressy ones. It was Katie's school play, something I hadn't anticipated when I agreed to open late for the Open Studios.
In the end I rather rudely had to rush away from showing some people round the workshop and even then ended up late at the school. Why is it that I always feel like I'm in the wrong place?
However, when we got back home - still rather hassled - in the greenhouse, were the art prints.
It completely changed the evening!
for they are GORGEOUS. Even better than the proofs.
I sort of feel that I can brag about them because it was a team effort with Kate Stockwell, who transformed my scraps of paper and embroideries into proper computer files, and also with the printers JTCP who have done a fantastic job in keeping the texture of the originals.
This is a rather bad photo - in that it was taken inside at 9 pm with no proper lights - but even so you can see the texture of the wallpaper, the lines of stitching, the slight sheen of the 1960s dress fabric.
There are 2 prints - this Land Rover one and the Groovy Alphabet
They are 70 x 50 cm so fit into off the shelf frames, they are printed in the UK onto Carbon Balanced paper, and they are available HERE
To celebrate their arrival - and the fact that we are just so darned happy with them - we are giving 25% off the prints for TODAY ONLY.
Use the code PRINTS.
