Print and Drawing Acquisitive Awards 2014

Deborah Klein Cutting Lino, 2013, dry pastel, 31 x 41 cm

My partner, Deborah Klein, made a wonderful print called Corporeal-Ethereal, and my drawing is of her in the process of cutting the lino that eventuated in the linocut print.

We have all heard it said that the eyes are a window to the soul, but I think hands reflect the soul too. Hands are the soul in action which is clearly visible in master musicians, dancers, horsemen, and snooker players, just to take some examples. Within the hands is not only beauty but thought. 

My drawing will be in the Print & Drawing Acquisitive Awards 2014 at the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery from May 17 until July 13. Look them up at

Here is Deborah's finished print.
