Spring Snow, the Beast from the East

March 7, 2018

Lough Mask got a whisker brush from The Beast From the East, no great biting storm Emma or fierce snow storms. But it did get very cold and these last couple of days of tail end melting give modest bits of excitement….even if we didnt get within a snowball of a snowman. BooHiss!

wet plate limestone pavement

Limestone Pavement, Lough Mask. A new plate

April 26, 2017

Chunks […]

Plovers on the Rocks

September 27, 2016

A band of Plovers (well, a congregation, correctly) sitting in a cave.. ok, standing on the near shore rocks, looking out into a heavy mist muffling Lough Mask. The key to this large 90cm x 60cm Plover plate will be printing a magnificent misty sky. I haven’t discovered how to print a magnificent misty sky..but […]
