Art Auction for Arthur Rank Hospice

All the artists taking part in Cambridge Open Studios this year, have been asked to decorated a heart template. These will be auctioned later in the year to raise finds for the new Arthur Rank Hospice currently being built at Shelford Bottom (no sniggering at the name please).

I decided to do a paper drypoint print featuring blackbirds and a smaller heart highlighted with silver metal leaf. Click on the above photo to see the process involved.

And here is the finished print, titled 'Every Moment Counts'.  There are eight prints in the edition, a framed one going to the auction.  I will also be donating £5 from the sale of each of the remaining prints to the hospice as they have been instrumental in the care of several family members, so I know at first hand the valuable work they do.
