Dear Friends,
What a wonderful collection of prints!! I just love this variety of
perspectives and approaches to a simple situation like an OX!

Thanks to everyone who made prints and thanks to Carole and Julio for
posting them for us. I spent some time this morning sketching some of my

Now I'll go and do my own OX print as my next experiment in my flooring
lino. Two people requested mine and I'm happy to send them to others (as

I've been hesitant to sign up for exchanges with time and space crowding me
a bit these days.

Thanks everyone! Always learning from all of you.

Subject: Open Studio - First Weekend
Posted by: Andy English

This year's first Open Studio weekend was a very pleasant occasion with a steady stream of visitors and pleasing sales which, traditionally, go towards my purchase of printmaking paper for the next twelve months. The weather was beautiful, with the sun streaming in but not as hot as earlier in the week, when the rollers on one of my small Adana presses melted in the heat.

Inside the door, There was a wall of framed engravings, a browser containg the newly editioned prints from Freshly Picked and a folder of the engravings for Philip Pullman's A Outrance. This was followed by a group of sketchbooks to show how projects develop from the first pencil sketches to the final ink drawings:

The recently tidied shelves had small displays, including some of the engravings that I have made for wine labels:
