108 / impermanence

After a long time stored in less than ideal conditions, these pictures
were returned to me. The sketch above was a trial on draughtsman's linen,
I think it was after a visit to the marvellous Borobudur

It's a bit of a shock to see how badly some paper has foxed.
Even worse, the framers who glued the paper 
or card to a backing board, with rubber solution..

Then there's the history of all the moves, with or
without glass; as they were all painted in gouache,
I suppose its amazing that anything survived
