Really going to miss

Always something new and beautiful to find there.
Looking forward to seeing them in a new location soon.
RCA Secrets again . . .
see if you can spot mine!
This is how I made a linocut for this year’s 20:20 Print Exchange
Starting with a photograph I took on a beach in winter – I played around with it, reversed and simplified the image. In my sketchbook I experimented with colour and layers of Japanese paper to define the sand, when it seemed right I transferred the image to the lino and cut it.
Now I’m printing the lino and experimenting with pressure and paper – dry or dampened? Dampened looks best so far . . .
lots of decisions to make but it looks promising
Some of my work will be at Wood End Gallery Pertenhall Bedfordshire
A windowful of my prints
‘Missing the Point’
This is proving a popular print!
RCA Secrets Exhibition last year
A lovely postscript to this exhibition was an email I got from Kay Jones
“I am writing to let you know that I purchased one of your RCA secret postcards , “Girl with a red earring”. It was in my top ten of favourite cards so I was really pleased to be able to buy it. I am going to get the card framed with a red frame to go with the colour of the ear ring.”
Thank you Kay – I’m impressed that you got up at 3 am to join the queue – it’s so nice to know who buys the cards we donate!
RCA Secrets is also in Dubai this year

‘… an image that we, in the city, rarely see – “Power Lines” A drypoint by Di Oliver. For me this has a slightly nostalgic feel. It is not something that is generally portrayed in such detail and I find Di’s treatment of the subject resonates with me as it will with you.’
