Collagraph, collage with tissue on heavy watercolor paper
I was given advice to stick with one medium, theme, or process for a year to perfect my skills. But, that just isn't in me. I want to try new things, new paper, new printing techniques, new themes including abstract. Many of the process I use are the same. I still audition images around the piece. I still paint tissue and use napkins and handmade paper. I'm intrigued with cardboard and collagraphs. Lately, I have been adding pastels and teabags. Still many ideas to pursue. These pieces are my entries in an upcoming exhibit and very different from my starting point. What's your take on the advice I was given?
