8x10 monoprints on Reeves paper
Since being back from Greece I've been playing with using leaves and ferns in monoprints. Of course the fig leaf had such a wonderful shape, but this is New England, the land of maples and oaks, and of course a Boston fern, so I had to use what was at hand. The printed images were intriguing as they had such texture and detail that I thought they might be nice just by themselves. They were printed with Golden Open paint-a slow drying acrylic. Though making more of a decorative effect, I enjoyed their beauty and simplicity.
Meanwhile I have two pieces ready for the Concord Art Association Holiday Show in December, and am working on some small studies for larger more abstract pieces.
