Alun Leach-Jones

Have idetified the origin of the drawings......Alun Leach-Jones. I should have remembered I look at his work a lot.
I found these two drawings in an old sketchbook and thought they would make small pieces in the new medium. The trouble is I am not sure if I copied them from Braque, or Ben Nicholson or ??? If anyone can tell me I would be grateful. I usually put a note beside them but didn't this time. I bought this lovely little bag at a Turkish shop recently. It is bright embroidery on the front set in black leather......trying to draw each day....and I realise that it is a rare day which does not include some kind of drawing. Had a lovely day with a friend Anne and Jo (Mystory) yesterday where we did very fast drawings. I loved the shapes within the fragments. I HAVE PLANS FOR THESE WATCH THIS SPACE ! Sorry no colour this time it belies the nomenclature of the site. Never mind....next post

New Directions

I have talked about Elizabeth Murray and howI am playing with works influenced by her work I really love doing the drawings and may have to paint canvases as well. Sorry the above came out sideways....i have no idea why...? This is the beginning of working the drawing in a previous post in 3D In my excitement I spoke to someone about digital lazer cutting of wooden shapes.....It appears that it is out of my price range, so I am beginning with small pieces using cardboard and polystyrene. This is the work as it progresses. I think this may be "it" I am keen to begin the next one...a bit larger next time. In the meantime I have sent some designs to "Spoonflower". Digital screen printing on fabric....how exciting will that be. I will share when they come.
