The same eco-print process I’ve been doing on fabric can also be done on paper,  As you can see the first batch was way too watery.   The second batch was also watery, though slightly improved.

Top: First batch. Bottom: Second batch.

By the third batch, I pretty much figured our how to reduce the amount of water on the paper to get a cleaner print.

These next ones from the last batch are much crisper!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
