Back to Portraits

Hi folks!  Feels like ages since I’ve put up a post.  Thanks to this blog I have been pretty busy.  A few months ago I vowed to sort out a website, which I’ve now done!  It’s nice to have a bit of pressure. is up and running.  All the photos and prints are for sale and I’m hoping to change the variety of prints on offer regularly.  I’ve got my photos and prints up in two venues in Bristol at the mo.  Once I set up the first one, any subsequent ones were much easier as all the nervousness was used up in the run up to the first one.  I;m going to try to apply this practice to lots of aspects of my life!!

I’ve also been going back to portraits.  I’m pretty excited about this!  I used to take a lot of portraits but haven’t been using them much in recent years.  I’m going to try to use images layered with text etc and see how they turn out as etchings.  The first one I did was the print of Laurie’s kids.  There are 3 separate pics blended together in photoshop.  The current one I’m in the process of making is a pic of my Grandma with overlayed text from her husband’s writing.
