I know Spring is in the air because I've spent the weekend cleaning! That is so scarey! We had a Grandbaby to stay for the night last night and DH has been working at the golf club all weekend so I just "did" stuff!
I forgot to say that on Wednesday we had the best rain for 6 months! This is a photo of our deck doors! There is an eight foot covered deck between these doors and the great outdoors! The rain blew in from the southeast big time!
The garden loved it! We had over 2 inches of rain in 36 hours! Magic!
The sun was finally warm enough ( and visible!) to try some sun printing.
This print is Okish - definitely a winter print but I like it!
I dried some grasses at the end of last summer and today I used them to sunprint - I wish I had dried more of them. grrr!
Something to work with later.
Now - this is a work in progress - I am very hopeful it has a big future!
What have i done here?
1. Lino print red back ground
2. Hand painted poppy head
3 Eraser cut prints
4. Polystyrene print with an eraser reduction (wow - that one is going to be hard to explain!)
5. A little bit of piecing and applique happening as well!
I love this piece. It is a mono print I did last year. It is a reduction print! (explain that one Sally!)
Today I used eraser cuts tp over print it - there are poppies (are you surprised?)rain drops and two little pears!
I think this one might be a keeper too!
Some thread painting and a bit of quilting and I think this might make a good little quilt.
I am still having so much fun with my paints!
