and we're off!

poor sweet halle broke her toe this weekend. not sure how, she came back limping after i let her out. you can see the swollen toe on the paw on the left.

 so now she has a splint for 6-8 weeks and needs to stay quiet. this could be challenging. we have drugs. should be fine as long as we can keep her off of it.

in better news, the weekend did yield some ideas to get me moving in the studio again. here's a 6x6 background that i was playing with for a while. i tried doing a print directly on it with no luck.

then- aha! print on tissue, place tissue on background. below is the print- made with acrylic paint-

and the print applied to the background- pretty happy with it, might go for more background showing through in the future....

and another- this looks better live because the copper leaf doesn't scan very well-

i also got some more layers put on the bigger pieces (don't worry barb, the trees are still there) and am closer to having my 44 new inches for the april hanging. whew!

no studio night tomorrow, as i head to ft worth early wednesday. i'll post when i can- have a great week!

You know me well - I scanned quickly to see if you had done away with the trees. I know this could happen at any moment... Poor Halle - she looks forlorn (or is she just loopy from the drugs). Still springlike in Denver, but we must head back to the Mts on Thurs.
