I had a chance to paint a scene from one of my visits to Riverside, CA.  My daughter took me to the beautiful botanic garden at UC Riverside and we had a lovely day.  Here's to the memory of that day in the sun.

very beginning monoprinting

I had a most enjoyable day today learning how to use a gelatin plate for monoprinting from Linda Germain.  Here are a few of my "beginnings."  Linda made the plates and we used Speedball ink.  I'll be using a commercial plate made by Gelli Art and look forward to much more "R&D."  Too dreary for plein air anyway!
