A small sketch on Arches rough paper with a limited range of colours and the squirrel mop brush on a hot day in Mallorca.
Now I am preparing to submit some pieces for an exhibition for the first time. And I am learning that there is more to display than sticking a bit of wood round a picture. My experimental pieces like Drone III and White Birds have irregular edges and uneven surfaces from the action of the medium making them difficult to mount properly. I will find out later this week what has been made of them. I need to select three of the five pieces I am having framed. Even writing about this feels a risk – there is a low probability of these pieces being accepted (even lower if I don’t get my act together and submit the form by Wednesday!).
