This is Deena a couple of weeks ago in my studio preparing a monotype. We worked a couple of hours printing an assortment of prints...raw material for further development. It really isn't that dark ....in fact I have an overhead skylight?! Tomorrow we will check in by phone around 11am and then begin work in our spaces for a couple of hours with the intention of meeting late in the afternoon with our results. A way to jumpstart some new work!
Yesterday, I met with another friend, Florie to catch up on our lives and work. We both had ordered the "Art Revolution" so we discussed what we have learned....neither of us have gotten very far in the book...actually we had both enjoyed reading "transformations: from chaos to order " by artist Kathleen Canover. The demonstrations pages that followed have us both intrigued and we will give it a try. Funny these ideas are not new to either of us but it is so easy to forget and so we will see how to incorporate these tools into our new work. Florie is driving over to Virginia City, Nevada to view the wild horses in their natural habitat. She is staying a few days...bringing charcoal and sketchbook and returning Wednesday. I'll be anxious to hear of her adventures! She also shared a new book "Acrylic Revolution"...now I need to order that one too! ha.
