So, in my little studio in Sandbach, the new series of work is underway and with oil paint taking a while to dry, even when used thinly, it is an issue when storing the work. So, after racking my brains (no pun intended!) I came up with an idea of a drying rack based on those I had seen in my school days. In my head I could see a wooden structure with a marble type contraption that held the paper in place.
Armed with a strip of wood, hooks, hangers and paint, I set to work. I can now say that I am very pleased with myself and have the photographs to prove it! Take particular note of the poster on the left. They were giving these out at the Saatchi Gallery in London last month.
