Printmaking: linoprint

I have made a new linoprint, called “My Bicycle”. It honours Grant Murdoch of the Coupar Angus Cycling Hub who spent two weeks cycling around Scotland in April, covering 1,500 miles in order to raise funds for a cycle training pump track at Larghan Park in Coupar Angus.
Original prints and greeting cards of “My Bicycle” will be for sale at another fundraising event, a coffee morning in Talbot Hall on Trades Lane Coupar Angus, 10am – 12 noon. A percentage of the sales price goes towards the pump track.
