its a long road and a lot of pickles...
Back at the end of August, thanks to the amazing Lunenburg farmers market, I experienced for the first time in my adult life the joy of pickling. It was one heck of a vinegary love-fest and the loving hasn't stopped since.
It's now four months later and I still haven't been able to kick the pickle brain so I finally decided to find an outlet for my gherkin craze. I started off with a graphite drawing of my Lunenburg dills and then just got carried away from there experimenting with some open screened pickles and finally a three colour pickle print.
My final print looks something like this... I'm hoping the world is ready for some fantabulous dill-pickle doorstops.
