Today was the last day to enter our AWOB juried art show. It was a busy day 🙄. I used to work best under pressure but I’m going to have to rethink that strategy. The last item finished was my 8x10 monoprint of a Brewer’s blackbird which I called “My True Colours”. Shown second, “Gems of Kejimikujik” is an 18x24 oil painting, and my “Fierce” owl is an 11x14 acrylic. Friend and jewelry artist Kathy Dumouchel and I collaborated on the last image, a 16x20 3D work called “Autumn Fields” featuring copper cast wheat made by Kathy (so beautiful) mounted onto a barnwood oval with a painting and copper harvest moon in the background - so much fun!
Monoprinting... my most recent obsession and pastime. I scored some feathers at one of our local second hand stores and used them to mask and print the image below. It’s so relaxing to set up and pull these prints... I have stacks and stacks :)
is started this abstract today and, although it needs quite a bit more work, I’m enjoying the direction it is taking. I hope your enjoying your Saturday!
It’s hard to beat the fun of Gelli printing. I’m learning new techniques during these experiments. I printed two copies of a magpie photo and covered both sides of the paper with clear shelf liner. Then I cut stencils and masks with a craft knife (a heated knife works best). Once complete, I ran a few prints to test and I like how they turned out. I’m slowly compiling quite a few custom stencils. Happy Easter!
Welcome! I hope you enjoy my painting blog. Painting gives me so much joy and I love sharing my journey. Thanks for visiting!
