Windsor Contemporary Art Fair

As you know I've been really working hard to show a good body of work at the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair.  Well, I'm heading off there now to set up.  Tonight is the private viewing and then it's all open to the public tomorrow.  If you're in the neighbourhood, or fancy a little trip out over the weekend, please come and visit me at Royal Windsor Racecourse!  Will blog again after the weekend.  Wish me luck!!!

Family Tree papercut

I've just got one more working day to go before I have to organise myself for the Windsor Fair on Friday.  So today I managed to get this piece drawn and cut!  I've had the idea for a family tree knocking around in my head for a while.  It was just a matter of getting it onto (and out of) paper!  The little character portraits are fictitious, but there's no reason why they couldn't have been real silhouettes of real people - I just didn't happen to have any.  But I do want to do my own family now - maybe for my parents Golden Wedding in March - hmmmmm.

Hot Air Balloon

I'm on a mission to produce as many pieces as I can between now and the Windsor Fair which starts a week tomorrow.  I think I've mentioned that I want my work to be "affordable" so I'm trying to complete pieces within the framework of a day - or 2 days at the most.  Anyway, I drew and cut this piece today.  I reckon I've spent about 8 hours on it in total.  It's exhausting working this way, but for a short period of time it's do-able.  Off to bed now!

PS: If you like my blog, please head over to my FB page and "like" that too!
