Winter closes in…

Today the weather is, at present, fairly decent…chilly but sunny.  But it’s that time of year when some days are pretty gloomy and it comes hard to work in the cold studio.  So out come my box sets, not the videos but one or the other of my ongoing series of small paper works.

Over the past few days I’ve been adding to the Drifters (15 x 21 cm.).  They sit in size order between the Landscapes (20 x 23 cm.) and the Festive’s (13.5 x 15 cm.) with the Pockets (10 x 10.5 cm.) and Baby ‘G’s (8 x 8 cm.) further down and the Geo’s (27 x 27 cm.) further up the line.

What is the point of all these you might reasonably ask…well it’s a way of recycling paper works that never resolved, trying out ideas and – well – just keeping busy…
