During the week Auriol and I went to Oxford to see Love is Enough: William Morris & Andy Warhol at Oxford Modern Art. I highly recommend a visit – three rooms of apparently rarely seen works, linked by both artists’ print making businesses and their collaborations with their peers.

This was a great show with a broad selection of line drawings, textiles, prints, books and magazines. Well worth a look.

Elizabeth Blades

Go and get some gorgeous artwork from Elizabeth Blades, a great print artist from the Midlands. I bought a children’s book-like owl print from Liz this year and I’ve just seen that she’s now got a load of beautiful tote bags.

Some of the prints in these photos are by another artist, Brendan McDowell.

Elizabeth Blades

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect frame for my Elizabeth Blades picture, The Tatty Two. I bought this several months ago and it arrived beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and a bow but it’s still not up on my wall. I found this gold-coloured frame at Boutique 73 in Wolverton a couple of months ago but I think I ought to get a black one to set the picture of properly.

In the meantime, here it is. This one reminds me of an old children’s book. Liz has a beautiful collection of etchings, including more owls and birds.
