katie, take 2

October 18, 2013

Can I possibly be posting twice within the week?  When I first started this blog, I felt it necessary to post at least every other day.  But situations change, don’t they?   Seems lots of people blog consistently for some time and then let their blogs take a back seat to other things.  Okay if the blog takes back seat but rather sad if the subject of their blog takes back seat.  As mine has.  Sigh.  I hate to go back and read some of the posts where I am determined to press on.  Just let me say, I’ve tried.

BUT, this week I have worked on trying to capture Katie again, this time on paper with pencil.   I do believe I was able to get more of a likeness  but still haven’t nailed it.  If at first you don’t succeed, blah, blah, blah.

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.
