Box of Bones

Many years ago I found the remains of a hedgehog in my garden, just the bones and spines. The rest had rotted away. They were so delicate and yet so strong and each one like a tiny sculptural object. I cleaned them up and put them in a box. 

In this lino print I worked on the different shapes of bones emphasised by the compartments of the box. 
I followed this with some mono-prints based on individual bones. These have a much more lost and other-worldly feel to them.

Having spent the last few months renovating and decorating, my blog has been sadly neglected. Now I have just gone on to it and discovered that all my pictures have been replaced by no entry signs. Ho hum. Is that because I haven't written anything for so long or is it something more drastic? I need to investigate! Here's a test picture.

...and now, several days later, I have finally finished re-instating all the photos and must try not to delete them all again! Now to start on current work!
