And MORE Monoprints

 Monoprint 7 "x 9"

These three, most recent posts have included about half of the monoprints that I did last weekend. The process included both additive and reductive methods involving hand cut stamps, textile blocks from India, found objects, masking, and drawing and painting directly onto the plate. Only one plate was used for each print, although I had planned to use two plates of different sizes.

And to think, tomorrow is already Thursday!!

Oh,  if you haven't visited Golly Bard's Drawing Room this week,
 go take a peek at what Holly's been up to! You'll be glad you did.  :)

Back From the Land of Busy

7" x 9"

7" x 9"

Yes, I'm still here!  I've been very busy recently, as I've previously alluded to.  But I was able to get a little monoprinting in this weekend.  Nothing spectacular, but some interesting combinations developed, a few of which evoke ethnic textiles.  I'll post more images over the next couple of days.  

Hope the coming week is good to you!

Thanks very much for visiting.....

Graphic Ovoids -- Finished (almost)

 "Graphic Ovoids"
Acrylic on canvas
36" x 36"

So this is where this painting ended up.  I just need to finish the sides. Although you really can't see it here, that white basket-weave texture that I added in the second  (third?) state is still barely discernible, lending a soft, suffused, and very intriguing green.  Although there is no red in any area of the green, it reads as though there is a hint of it.

I'm ready to move on.  I'll do one more ovoid painting and then it's off on another chase.  But before I begin another painting, I NEED to get back to printing, and collage. :) 

I am visiting your blogs, but I've been commenting less frequently as of late.  Hope my schedule will ease a bit soon....
Here's to the week ahead!  Hope yours is great!
