I've been completing two more Art House projects recently, starting with the print exchange. I had to create 12 prints with the theme 'the drive home' from which 10 will be swapped and sent to other participants so everyone ends up with the work of 10 other artists to enjoy. My first screen printed attempt didn't work so with time running out I created prints featuring a combination of photography and illustration but they didn't quite fit the brief . Given a second chance I decided to try out the screen printing kit for a second time and came up with this badger in his red sports car. I look forward to seeing what the 10 prints are that I will receive in exchange.
The second project I've just completed is the pen pal painting exchange. After receiving a mini canvas it took me a while to decide what to paint on it but in the end I decided on a garden scene with a little girl catching colourful butterflies. It's now in the post with a card about myself so it can be matched up with another canvas and swapped, so once I get their painting it will hopefully start a new friendship with a like-minded artist. I just hope that who-ever ends up with my work from either project enjoys it!
