    i hear the pink panther music ringing in my ears :) and John I will take a case of you bottled – the liquor cabinet is calling out for you – I think you would be well placed next to an ash wiskey or a pear cider :)

  • I hope the Pink Panther music doesn’t create any pre-birthing trauma – a fortune in therapy bills later. yes, well placed next to almost any boozings, merci. x

    This is my favorite of the series so far, but want to look at them all together. Great drawing here, quality of line, shapes and composition. Isn’t dry point great, so direct. Are these on aluminum? Just been looking at Paul Klee, this is as good as anything he did.

  • Thanks very much Jai. These are done on aluminium. I was a little familiar with Klee’s work, but took a renewed interest in him when I visited the Klee museum in Bern – and had shivers of recognition seeing several of my concerns in art had been his too. I did these etchings before that visit, but have certainly done more since that has a conscious inspiration from him, and so thank you very much for such kind words, made my day. I want to do more dry-point now – such great fun.
