Acrylics on Paper


Acrylic on paper
8"x11"

I've had absolutely zero time for creating anything (or blogging for that matter) in the past couple of weeks, so I've "dredged" up some earlier works on paper.   In so doing, I remembered that the above painting was the inspiration for one of my first monoprints that later found its way, in one form or another, into a couple other pieces.  One of them, also completed a few years back, incorporated cut-out portions of a Xerox copy of the original.  The other,  #5 in my "Remnants" show, incorporated parts of the actual original print.  I still have a usuable strip from that print that's lying on my drafting table, beckoning me daily!

Woke up to grey skies and cool air on this lovely weekend morning.  Heading out to the garden now for a savory few moments with a cup of coffee.  (Have you noticed -- even for those of us who don't Twitter, language is becoming evermore truncated and "Twitteresque."

Thanks for your visit!
