Pip describes Herbert’s work environment at the counting-house as dusty, hot and grimy. He hangs around until noon, when Herbert gets off and they go to lunch. Pip thinks the restaurant to be a fine establishment until he notices that there is “more gravy on the tablecloths and knives and waiter’s clothes, than in the steaks.”
After lunch the two head to Mr & Mrs Pocket’s house in Hammersmith (Herbert’s folks). This sounds like a very pleasant place, with a little gate and a garden overlooking the river with children tumbling about. Mrs Pocket stumps Pip when she asks him if his mamma is quite well. (Is she talking about his mother who passed away or his sister who raised him?)
Here is another gelli print that I made while taking Carla Sonheim’s online Gelli Class. I’m having so much fun! And so far have kept up with the class. Tomorrow is the last day. Can’t wait to see what she has planned for us!
This acrylic monoprint is a depiction of Mr & Mrs Pocket’s lovely home in the country, with the river at the bottom, the garden in the middle and the fence at the top. I know, it’s kinda messy and abstract, but I am very pleased with the results!
