Even though I have been busy I have still been doing a bit of art. I recently got together with my art friends Ro, Dot and Patsy at Ro's home and we did some fabric printing...lots of fun and Ro shared her fabric printing technique with us all, showing how to make our own prints from bits and pieces we all have around our home. I was very happy with the fabric printing I did on the day and will make sure it goes into a special cloth. Some of these pieces were using a stamp I had myself on the day and others with stamps that Ro had made earlier. Isnt the effect wonderful!!!
I have also been doing a bit of printmaking lately. I took part in an exhibition with a couple of my art friends, Meg Abrecht (painter and printmaker), Regina Dudek (jewellery and sculpture) and Nic Perrin (oil painter). Will share some photos once I upload them. I carved and printed quite a few whimsical birds for this exhibition with my "Sunshine Owl" being my inspiration. Below is a little owl linocut print, approx. 3 inches x 4... I have named him "Whoot". He was the simplest and smallest of my pieces, but I loved his simplicity and he came up well framed.
I hope you are all enjoying your preparations for the festive season. I love the Christmas season, everyone is in such a happy and generous frame of mind ... the world is a nicer place. I intend to get all of my Christmas decorations up this weekend (normally I have them out by the 1st December...bit slow this year). I love decorating the house for Christmas.
I will be back soon with a photo of my new cloth.
ENJOY A TINY
CLOSE TO HOME.
IT CHANGES YOUR PERSPECTIVE,
REMINDING YOU THAT THE WORLD
IS DEEP AND RICH AND FULL OF
COLOR AND MIRACLES.
have a wonderful week.
