Along the Trail

New in my shop:
Along the Trail
8 x 8 Mixed Media

My interpretation of the trail to the bluff at Ft Ebey on Whidbey Island; one of our favorite camping destinations.

Nature Prints

Spent some art time with friends yesterday. Wendy showed us a new trick with her large die cutting machine that was very cool. Mono-printing/pressing with dried plants. Ink/acrylic paint is applied to the cutting plate, dried plants arranged and then pressed onto heavy paper in the machine. 
Here's my first attempt - using printing ink. (Colors are not true)

First print - 
The plant material was then removed and remaining ink pressed next. 

Second Print - showing the paint left behind. (This is my favorite)

Final print laying the plant material with ink side up. 

I love the possibilities, and will be revisiting this technique. And I may need that large die cutting machine. ;) 

Happy Friday!

Winter colors

A few weeks ago we were “in the area” so went to Lake Padden for our walk. We discovered, to our delight, that the lake at the north end was frozen solid. It was so lovely with the mist rising from the ice. Cold and lovely.

There is a certain beauty in the colors of winter, don’t you think?
