Hello there! Hope all is well with you today.

I had a bit of a challenge this week as my son Matt injured his finger and can't drive, so we went across to his home in Birmingham to help out with the school run.

However I needed to find a way to continue my current commission so rigged this up on their dining room table. I used the backboard from my studio at home as the base. then used firm cardboard, plus a heavy box, to lean on while working.
