Postcard – Lady looking at her hand

I say I made this postcard in April 2020, but really, it started off life as a print made with the Gelli plate in 2016.

It wandered around the studio, never feeling quite finished. Then one day I turned it the long direction and got right to work on it. Here is where it is now, and where it (I think) will stay.

    Love it! I often do that too. I look at a piece and think, meh. Then I turn it around on each side and something else will offer itself up to me. But it was there all along. I just wasn’t looking at it properly.

    Sometimes I hold on to these things knowing there is something missing but not quite what I should do, and then one day all of a sudden, the answer is clear. Sometimes, it is just patience that makes the art turn out well, I think!
