This is a reprint, I didn’t have much hope for.  I’ve been experimenting to see how many lousy prints I could revive. I’m happy to say that with a little love of what you do and some patience, miracles can happen.

At the end of last season, I remordanted a bunch of pieces that were not up to pat with alum, 3 applications of soy mikk and a final dip in morte alum.  They’ve cured for almost a year. This time, I dipped again in some fresh alum and used a ferrous sulfate carrier cloth.  Finally, it was rolled on an iron pipe. While it is a bit murky after washing and ironing, I love how it turned out.

Love the blend of green leaves among the gray and the overall depth.

Linking up with Nina Marie!

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.
