Here are the prints I’ve been working on lately.
The betta fish piece was a trial run of printing on painted paper. I thought the multicolored effect suited the fish.
I had it painted from a previous project I was working on and hadn’t used.
It’s painted with watercolors, salt for effect, and cheese cloth for texture.
At the moment, there are only two using this background effect, but I plan on doing up more sometime in the near future.
Next, my Magnolia’s.
I wanted to do something with a subtler touch, so I went with yellow, white, and silver.
Finally, the pomegranate.
I wanted this piece to be rich and warm so I went with red and gold.
All in all, I think they turned out pretty well.
Here they are laid out to dry.
Well, that’s it for today.
I’m off to work on something new though I don’t yet know what.
Well I’ve finally finished something.
I feel like I’ve been pulled in 10 different directions and it’s not going to stop yet.
So what have a finished? #2 in the Three Fold Prayer series: “Promise”
Here it is for your viewing pleasure.
I really like the blue on this one. It’s just so rich.
As for the bookmarks yes I am still working on them and I was hoping to post those as well but the darn things take so long to dry.
So they’re not finished yet.
Maybe tomorrow…I dunno.
Well Cheers for now!
Create ~ krē-āt
14th century Middle English, from Latin creatus, past participle of creare; akin to Latin crescere to grow te:
1: to bring into existence
2 a: to invest with a new form, office, or rank b: to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior
3: cause, occasion
4 a: to produce through imaginative skill b: design
I’ve finished the last piece I had painted for the series, #7.
From here on I’m back to square one in terms of the creation process.
Interestingly enough 7 emphasizes creation,
so it’s only fitting that I pause here before going on.
I’ll update once I have more images to add. Til then, I leave you with #7 “Create with me.”
