Postcard – Red face checked dress lady

Here’s another postcard from the past now made into a new version.

Here is the 2016 version, a print with the Gelli plate:
Print #4 Postcard summer 2016

And here is the current (and I hope the last) version.

    Despite the reds and orange, your lady looks a little melancholy perhaps. I hope that’s not a reflection of your own mood although with everything that’s going on in the world at the moment, it would be very understandable.

    No, I don’t generally put my own moods into those of my “people” (I think not, anyway). I’m not good at making expressions to match a feeling unless I practice (I have a really poor visual memory and usually I have to go and look at myself in the mirror to get the idea, if I don’t have a reference). So when I draw a face, well, it is what the pen does more than what I do, I think! I like to say it is the pictured person deciding for him or herself, but really, either it’s the pen, or chance! All is fine here, we cope and we make good things out of less than nothing, sometimes. Or we try to. the effort is everything.

    I think this figure has a Friday feeling. The drooping eyelids make me think this person is exhausted and is looking ready to get cosy and relaxed, a mood suggested by the warm colours of the gelli print.
