I can hardly believe it is July Friday. Time is zooming. The good news is we have received some good rains here in Albuquerque. Hoping for more.
I took a 2 day workshop June 17th & 18th. This was at Remarque Print Workshop. The workshop was taught by a terrific artist. Creating Monotypes with Chine Collé was the class taught by Barbara Kuzara- a terrific artist and teacher. Her way of doing Chine Colle was very different from what I had learned- I learned lots and creating the many layers was so challenging and exciting. It was a terrific 2 days. The three collages are from the workshop- they are 5" X 7". I enjoyed working small.
This print is titled "I Carry You In My Heart". Some of the imagery here is printed onto tissue like paper. There are many layers in this and when working in layers it is hard sometimes to get the order of adding the parts correct. This one went through the press at least 5 times.
The title for this one is "Star Light Star Bright". Like the one above, this has elements that were printed on Nepalese Lokta paper, a natural tissue paper. This print also has many layers.
Cyanotype I did from a photograph I took using a wooden doll house as a set. All the parts except for the chair were printed on Lokta paper.
