I've re-posted the photo of the village lino cut from March 15th and now the result of that print is the 11'x11' piece in golds, greys, reds and black. My conversation began with the topic of memories and with the beginning of adding acrylic the print started lifting, floating and smearing while I began dabbing, blotting and wildly brushing. It was a back and forth effort at which point I added linen, plastic netting, photo collage to finish the 'scene'. It feels like a memory...not mine but maybe a memory floating in the cosmos. I'd much rather work in the abstract but this little village was a fun distraction.
The other photo is of a crochet matzos cover I made a few years ago for my holiday table. My crocheting had some major flaws so always the artist, I sewed on leaf applique' to hide the obvious errors and painted the leaves with fabric paint...added beads and a linen backing! Speaking of holidays....Happy Holidays and Spring Joy to each and every one!
