Assorted sizes of three leftover or extra canvases, 8'x8, 10'x10 and 16'x16'. I'm using my collagraphs I printed a few months ago using a rather old plate I dug up. I printed on thin paper with blue ink and some on a mixture of brown ink. I actually have a teapot and cups to fit on the larger one behind. I've worked in the studio a few times on these and a few more is needed. I've added levels of hard molding paste and hope to sand at some point to show different levels and colors...layers and levels of layers. (hopefully not make a hole in the canvas! ha)
I'm making some changes on the blog so you could say I'm under construction. My friend Deena is working up a new banner for me using some of my work close-up...we are having fun with the collaboration. She was over here earlier photographing my pastel pieces...big job and I so appreciate it.
The weather here is to be nice until Wednesday so I'm going to the pool for a swim. I also have planned to go to the nursery and buy those" tomato plants"in a bag. It seems they hang upside down and the tomatoes grow down and out?!
