Thanks Suzy, glad you like it. I've done a few things but am now looking for new projects. I'm also planning to try and go back to college here in France next year, at one of the larger arts institutes for a graphics diploma/degree. Like I said to my friend last week, the plan is to die a student eventually :) not a brilliant year but slightly better than last year, possibly. how about you?

Hi Pamela, like the work very much. I did some linocuts many years ago and would like to try woodcuts but I have just booked up to go back to the UK.

I am engaged on designing some wine labels for St. Mont which would be ideally suited to woodcut illustrations - one is of the head of a wild boar and the other the head of a red kite. Will keep you posted.

Hi all, anyone interested in taking a woodblock printing course? Feel free to ask any questions.

Couple of new mountain paintings.

Hi Anne, I joined about 5 years ago and received one form to fill in giving my income for the year and haven't heard from them since. The main advantage is that I have a document with a number and an official stamp on it which obviously is a great thing to have here in France! I have been invited to take part in several group exhibitions and this document has enabled me to do so. What other advantages there are to belonging to the organisation, I have no idea.

Maybe we should set up a monthly theme challenge?

Haven't been either Liz but would like to. Always thought that he comes from the illustration side of painting - 30's style pulp fiction book covers, and that though he creates atmosphere, his figure painting isn't very good. Have been to Monets' garden along with a thousand Japanese tourists a few years ago. Wow! those paintings are seriously big!

That was a comment by the way to Neil, sorry Liz not been to the Edward Hopper exhibit.
