Sue Colozzi was my only workshop student at the end of September and she produced some really nice prints ( a tiny bit enhanced for a better view).  She especially loved doing the rustprints because it’s the only way she’s ever made something abstract! The truth of it is that we both learned a lot during the experience.  Working with her made for a fun day and helped to make me a better teacher.

Although I missed being out there for most of the summer, I’m making good use of my time.  I’m especially glad to have the time to experiment with different mordants and in using them different orders. Also making some great tannin concoctions is a fun and interesting thing to do. It’s amazing how long I can work outdoors in my tent.  When all the pots and crockpots and the coffee urn is on (for hot water) it warms up pretty quickly.

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.
