WIP...



Today I was very restless I think mostly because of the events over the last 24 hours (see previous post)... Today we went to visit M and D to see how they both were - both were wearing brave faces and it made me sad to see them so sad... What can one say when to someone when they have lost something which they have loved and cherished...

After stitching the seahorse for H in the CQRRO6 I have been involved in I have been thinking about other ways I could reproduce it... As I am contemplating taking part in a lino printing workshop and I thought I could use the seahorse image again... So for an hour and a half this afternoon I drew - I had a a couple of pictures for reference but I was determined to make an original drawing for the printing process... I am mostly happy with the above result and see that with a little more fiddling I could start the next part of the process...
E suggested I have a go at colouring it in photoshop ( steep learning curve here!!!!) but again it gave me a sense of what it might look like if I used it as another medium... I hope to have a go at colouring the prints to some degree - but we will see... I was also thinking about printing it onto fabric and then embellising it in some way - perhaps an underwater CQ block... Why do I get these inspirations on Sunday night????
On a lighter note P has just 'wrestled' the first huntsman spider for the year out the door... Why do they persist in getting so high up on the wall...

Hi Sharon

Nice to see you back blogging - I've missed you. Email me privately and we will work something out regarding the fabrics.

Love the Seahorse - very pretty. I'm so sorry about the loss of such a loved pet. My thoughts are with you all

Hugs

Catherine.

Sorry to hear about the family loss - it's dreadful when our furbabies pass over the Rainbow Bridge :( Now I know there's finally one good reason why I didn't manage to move in next to you ... I'd have to share the huntsman spiders with you! ;P Your seahorse looks cute! :D
