4 Paintings find new homes

This past month I have said a fond farwell to 4 paintings. "Cranberry Harvest", from my spontaneous liquid acrylic series, has traveled all the way to the UK for its new home. "Tangerine Sunrise", one of my abstracts, will be arriving very soon in Alberta. The last 2, "Melody II" and "Organic Letter", which are geletine monoprints, will be hanging shortly in Washington State. I will miss each of them but am so thrilled that they have found fine homes with new collectors.

Gel monoprint

Bringing nature to your work means using nature IN your work when you are gel printing. In my gel monoprints I begin by "gathering" not just my thoughts but element from nature that I will use that day in my work. These elemenst can be used to resist the ink or apply the ink. All the time considering each layer and how it will embellish the layer before.
