Outside it is this time of day. Inside the fire is lit and I have begun experimenting on a scrap piece of lino. The Barnacle geese at Caelaverock were absolutely splendid and shout out lino cut!The trick appears to be not to make them look like Canada Geese.....so more practice required. ...

After a very busy few days of work I finally got out for a walk this morning. This is CairnHoly an absolutely lovely place
I felt very happy to be up on the hillside above the Solway Firth.

The trees are smothered in swathes of Ivy and the woodland floor carpeted in Snowdrops felt a million miles away from the Western Isles.A flock of Long Tailed Tits and 3 Roe Deer were a lovely bonus.The sketch book is beginning to bulge and I have lots of new material from which to work.

After enjoying the calm of the Sabbath I have been back in the studio today...most of the time. A brief diversion to clean out the chickens who rewarded me with two eggs!but that is a distraction.....It has taken me the best part of the day to find my stride and print an edition of collagraph plates based on Callanish I am really in the zone now and am about to explore plate No.4. I like it when it goes dark outside.....I can just focus until Peter comes looking for food. In fairness he did prepare lunch. ...
