Collagraph-on a press

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Floral 1..collagraph printed on a press has been my latest adventure.  This was basic collagraph created by cutting cardboard and arranging it on a cardboard plate, adding tissue, string, and using oils to print on a press.  I then collaged using a similar print.  Totally different.

Have you ever been working on a piece of art and it just doesn't come together?  Well, this latest effort, "Barnyard Beauty",  has been about a two weeks off-and-on endeveaor.  Getting ready for Down on the Farm: Art in Agriculture show that will be on display at Gallery Fifty at the Grand Traverse Commons in Traverse Ciy, MI.  Reception is on Fri., Sept. 6.  Wabi Sabi inspired...vintage paper, stenciling, collage, junk printing,.. just up my alley. 

Also entered "Heart's Haven Lost", 20" x 20", Mixed-media.  Hope the judge likes them.  Hmmm...what's with all of the x's, I wonder? LOL
