About a week ago I asked folks on Facebook what they would rather read me blog about, my art fair influences, my terrific middle school art teacher, or a sort of photo essay on one of the processes I use in my paintings. Process sort of won, but I will eventually get to the other topics.
So I start taking photos of what I'm working on.
Transferring a new damask pattern that Scott designed onto linoleum.
Starting to carve
And then it all goes a little off track, the lino is in the background of this shot, still being carved as I move on to some stitching.
And then these happen, as I am working on a new version of "Goody Two Shoes"
Oh, and I am still printing other bits...
And sticking down other things, and waiting for them to dry.
As other pieces are finished.
So there you have it, Lucky Girl, Black Sheep, Goody Two Shoes, and another yet unnamed piece are all crashing around out there, ranging from barely started to almost complete. I bounce from painting to printing to stitching to photographing, and somehow it is all getting done. All linear thought processes out the window, I visualize something closer to pushing an entire wave to shore.
Now to get back out there...
