Woman #14

February 16, 2013

Last Saturday was spent in bed with a bout of stomach flu and fever.  My pour husband.  Today was so much better.  I received a wonderful  Utrecht Baby Press for St. Valentine’s Day (he really loves me!).  I cannot wear it around my neck or on my finger but it is so much more fun to play with than jewelry!  I pulled out old cut lino blocks and ran a few prints to see how it works.  It is a little persnickety but if you run the plate though with care, it will give you an even, good quality print and is a whole lot quicker and easier than using the back of a spoon!  But I am not an expert yet and did get a little frustrated, so after a while I put it away and pulled out my watercolors.  It has been a while since I had the whole day to just play with art supplies!  Here is my watercolor.

I hope your day has been as fun as mine.

Super Bowl Sunday

February 3, 2013

It is Sunday and they happen to be playing something called the Super Bowl and I was able to spend the day in the studio.  This is the result – a super bowl chicken.  It is pastel and larger than a sheet of print paper, I am proud to say.  I have only been doing small things lately and I want to paint/draw/create larger, but just haven’t convinced myself to do anything that will take longer than a couple of hours.  Well, this didn’t take much longer than that and it was super fun pulling out pastels.  These were my mother’s pastels (mine are buried under hers) and hers were, I am sure, organized the way she liked them.  I just used what was on top.  And that was mostly Sennielier.  Oh, the pleasure of using Sennelier soft pastels…  What an inheritance!
