My Masters is almost over, 15 days until hand in for our degree show.
So - this can only be described as displacement activity - blogging in the middle of a print run. I just need to do something different for a short while, to clear my head a bit.
The work is, 'The Virtuous Weed, or Pages from a Herbal'.
My Herbal will be a collection of images of wild plants found in my garden or around-abouts, and put together to show the forgotten medicinal and culinary uses of plants like, Plantain, Shepherd's Purse, and Dandelion.
Today I'm working on a couple of poisonous plants with medicinal uses, Deadly Nightshade and Foxglove, and mixing up some fabulous murky colours for them.
So far I've completed 14 plates, only 4 to go . . . . . plus text for the prints, oh and the written work - arrghh!
The Froxfield Herbal.
Here are two of examples of the work I took with me to BABE a couple of weekends ago, it was well organised and busy, and great fun too.
