Where does the time go? Already Thanksgiving has passed, and December is here.... I'm putting together a workshop schedule for 2012, with visions and revisions as to what workshops I'll be offering - and I should be able to announce them soon.
In the meantime, I've been working on a series of small relief printed paintings. Incorporating relief printing into painting is fun and wonderfully exploratory. You can't predict how the results will turn out – so you just appreciate it. If you approach it as a layering process, each layer adds new interest, depth, and complexities.
It's a method you can use to create beautiful papers to incorporate into collages, or you can use it directly in paintings. With these paintings, I intend to add stencils and block prints – but I like to stop and appreciate each stage just as it is before I move on.
