Knuckling Down

Just getting down to some work after our “Cinema Night’ in the studio. I had to clear away paper and drawing stuff and make room for the chairs. It was a great night. Habemus Papam.


So today I am back to the drawing board, literally, as well as printing a small, almost square drypoint. I have been working in this format since Christmas and have been finding it a bit of a challenge as I am working on very large drawings at the same time!
The studio is extremely peaceful and silent as it has been gently snowing this afternoon. I love this type of atmosphere to work in, even though it is very cold and I dread anyone calling in and may catch me in my inky dungarees, several t-shirts and matching face!

Wondering what the rest of the house are up to today while I am at work?
L.S.H is watching and shouting at the rugby on the telly. Squeak is asleep at the cooker in her basket (dreaming of cashmere). Pip and Missey are curled up in a basket in the utility room….everyone is happy!

REVISED UPDATE:

Everyone is NOT happy! In general, I’d say the mood in the LSH camp is low after that show in Murrayfield. We won’t dwell on it - there will be enough red ink spilled in the papers…

Happily, we had already booked to see a film yesterday and off to the LightHouse for an Italian movie. Piazza Fontana is well worth a watch; but not uplifting.

The QUIZ in Mulligan’s in Stoneybatter was though; we didn’t get within even a sniff of the prizes: the top three teams were really on the ball, but a respectable fourth is a result we can be pleased with; especially considering we only went in to get something to eat. Tip for next time - don’t have a bottle of wine before the questions...
