Medusa and the Plums

I have finished the second of my Medusa etchings: ‘Medusa and the Plums’… for those of you who don’t know, this is actually for my planned 2014 calendar.

And, so that you can see what they properly look like with all the dates and stuff, I will be posting images of the calendar pages very soon – something I have been meaning to get round to for ages but haven’t. For now, though, I have been printing all day, and my wrist seems to need a serious rest, so I’m just going to post this image and go and find a well-deserved medicinal glass of wine…
