Some different techniques

We one is different, the other I’ve is a technique I’ve posted in the past.  I need to work out a routine that allows more studio time and time to post on my blog.  Between having my grandson here two days a week, teaching one day a week and my Fridays with Art Buddies, I’m not getting any major works produced.  That has to change as I have shows coming up and new work is required.  I haven’t been totally idle, small size monoprints I can work on in the kitchen while Warner  chats or sleeps.   This one is part of my Sacred Spaces series.

The other technique utilizes transparencies and hand sanitizer.  It’s one of many transfer techniques and a new one for me.  This is one reason I treasure my Fridays with my art buddies.  We are all constantly experimenting and sharing.  Annie Morgan is the one who does the most experimenting and she discovered this technique.  She doesn’t have a web site or a blog so I can’t give you a link.  She is working on it though.  Here are a couple of the transfers.

I’m working on more of the small monoprints and more transfers.  As I go along I’ll photograph the steps and post them.

Just letting you know I’m still here

I’ve had some computer problems, major problems.  As a result I’m on a new computer and having to reinstall several programs, adjust settings, figure out the glitches, you know the drill.  I’m still working on it but I have most of the problems sorted out.  I still have an e-mail glitch but I can live with it until someone who is smarter than I am about these things comes over and looks at what is happening.  I’ll be back to painting soon. 

Meanwhile, since I don’t have any new art to post, I’ll post a picture of something else that is taking  up much of my time…. and I love it!
