30 Prints in 30 DaysThursday, 29 October 2020 13:31
I count myself as fortunate to live in a beautiful, uncrowded part of the country, already set up for working from home, but this year has certainly been difficult and challenging for us all. And now we are heading into winter!
November is not my favourite month. As the days grow shorter, more cold, wet and dark, I become gloomier! So for enjoyment, fun, distraction and to make life for my family more bearable, I have decided to challenge myself to make 30 different original prints in 30 days, from 1st – 30th November.
I will be working with a range of subjects and in a variety of printmaking techniques, some tried and tested but I also hope to use this as a chance to experiment. I will probably be taking inspiration from things close at hand, since at present we are again being asked to stay at home.
I’m aiming to make work that is positive in feel and I hope to bring a bit of cheer to others too in these dark days.
An image of each work produced will be emailed to my mailing list by the following day and I will also post on Instagram/Facebook and at regular intervals, on my website too. Those on my mailing list will get first view; Instagram/Facebook posts will be later, after 5pm.
I’ll share the back story and also something of the process of making each print.
Would you like to be included in the daily emails? If so, please use the website contact form and I will be happy to add you to the mailing list for this project.
I will include all names on the mailing list by the end of November in a draw for a free original print.
The prints will be for sale and I will be donating 25% of the proceeds to Cancer Research UK.
Other ways to follow this project are through my Instagram page @ruththomasart and Facebook page Ruth Thomas.
I hope people will find it interesting to see how this project unfolds. I’m excited and actually now looking forward to November!
