“This one’s called Handstand … because I used to enjoy doing handstands. Couldn’t cartwheel though.”
“So this gif is based on a lino cut I made years ago. It’s one of a series. Childhood stuff. It’s called Paper Doll.” Blimey.
What on earth is a GIF then? “It’s a kind of moving image … a short, looping animation. Very short. And these days … more likely a video clip.”
I really don’t know what you’re talking about, dear. “Neither do I most of the time. And probably not now.” Oh you’d better just get on and show me one of your gifts then. “GIFs, Mum.”
Anyway. Where have you been? I thought you were painting watercolours.
“I got distracted.” You do get distracted easily you know. Your problem is … you lack concentration.
“I was making gifs.” Gifts? Well anyone can be distracted by gifts. “No Mum. GIFs!”
