I have been busy in the studio making little bits and pieces for my Open Studio days in October - works which are indicative of where my mind is these days, and reflecting the work I have been practicing or learning.
These 'Australian Stories' (actually I haven't definitely decided on that name though the bits of images are all suggestive of places I have seen around Australia) have been fun to work with - cutting up bits of etchings to fit in the spaces of my embossing. They look a bit much all together, but individually, each one tells a different story.
The photographs are not grand ..... it is raining here (and so there is no natural light in which to photograph) which is sheer bliss as we have been in drought conditions. You can virtually hear the trees smiling broadly - and I certainly am.
