More Printmaking, Still


Even more stamps....can you believe I'm still doing this? I kept my promise to myself, that I would continue on the stamping and collaging road to see where it got me. I was motivated to make more lino cuts, more designs. Then I cut them up and made new papers with the pieces of the stamp designs. I want to cut them up even more and assemble a collage with the pieces. That's the plan.


I also keep feeling an ink drawing, maybe even painting with ink. I have Dr. Martin's set of 12 colors and you know how that call of the colors is, don't you? I bought one of those huge desk calendars to hang in my studio so I can see my LIFE. If I can't see it, I forget. Anyway, now I can plan ahead and be reminded of what I planned so I can actually make deadlines and things like that which will greatly improve my art life. For this week, according to the calendar, I'll be working on my miniatures so that I can get them there on time, October 17. Next I'll begin some figure studies of my sister. I'm so excited about doing that! Back to the acrylics! I have some great reference photos from a few weeks ago and I can get her here to sit for me if needed. So, come back and check on me. See if I'm still on task.

Thanks, Julie and Uta. What would I do without your support? It really helps to hear some positives about my 'journey' through art because I always have that nagging negative voice in the background. Thanks!

thanks Deb, I love the campfire, it makes me feel warm when I look at it. I love what you are doing, those prints are great and the beginning of your painting. I can't wait to see that done.Jeanne
