For all my blog friends, those new - welcome - and those of you who regularly read and comment - thankyou, you're lovely company - here is a first view of one of the new pieces I am showing at my Ludlow exhibition. Red Fox is carved from a block of sandstone, which is rusty in colour, so very fitting.
I've got a really early start in the morning, driving to Ludlow to set up my exhibition 'My Chisel and I' which starts on Friday the 24th July - there's a Meet the Artist that evening - and then it runs to 7th August. I've been loading up the van today, and it is a tight squeeze! The Ludlow Assembly Rooms have a huge window at the front and I've made a poster to hang there - it isn't often you get the opportunity to put your name up in lights, and I couldn't pass it up, so bought some hardboard and paint and set to!
This is eight feet by four feet, so hopefully it will show up. I had forgotten how difficult it was to paint a straight line - don't look too closely, there are lots of wobbles. I did a smaller board with my tools on as well.
The gallery is on the 5th floor, so it will be quite a day setting up - luckily they've got a lift!
