Orange and Black and 1500 Dots

Relief print on cotton
(Yes, the vintage golf tees make me happy.)

Screen print on linen. 
(How about that rock?)


Potato print, gold gouach and ink
 6"x6"

And yes, there are 1500 dots there.  I counted them as I did them. Or was it 1200?? (I did this several months ago...) 

Still trying to find my way back to my paintbrushes....Very busy here in Portlandia but managing to find a little time to catch up with what you are doing. :)  Here are a few "goodies;" one of them previously mentioned and the other two new to me:   Avalanche Loomsannekata, The Silly BooDilly.  Good images, good writing, good projects!! 

Hope you're finding time to create!!

Anna Maria -- Yes, I did count them. But not AFTER I did them...WHILE I was doing them. And I really do think there are 1500 there. :) Your shop is so colorful with all the work you've recently added. Looks great! Best

Betsy, I'm loving orange, too. It is SUCH a "feel good" color. I've got oodles of golf tees. I routinely looked for them at sales for quite some time. Haven't yet settled on a way(s)to use them in assemblage pieces. Beginning to feel like maybe I should put them out there in Etsyland for someone else to use.....

Good heavens, Gloria. Just found you on the list of followers of Geninne's Blog. I'm an illustrator, taking a printmaking class for the heck of it, and your work is making me giddy! So experimental, so mixed-media, so fun. Following!!
