No time to write. The workshop went well, we did monoprints from collagraphs and monotypes from the ink left over on glass sheets after printing. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Will post some results later. Now I'm preparing for my exhibition which opens on Saturday and lasts for the few days until I leave on March 3rd. Can't believe it's nearly all over!

Below is another painting, again from that cafe the earlier monoprint was about. It's called Anazu, not azul as I said before. And some more photos of Tavira.

Catching up to you! Too much to comment on! It all looks so fascinating. Your portraits and photos of people are remarkable. I know what you mean about the struggle for simplicity, or getting back to elemental things.

Hattie,glad you're looking in.That struggle, yes. It's like those workmen in front of the blue and yellow houses,making a lot of noise and mess, in order to put things in order....

Natalie, the time really has flown, and you've been very productive with teaching, creating new work and capturing the town in photos - all lovely! Make sure you get photos of your exhibition and opening crowds to show us. Congratulations!
