we're having a beautiful indian summer here and i was finally able to get out and capture some color this weekend-
as well as some dog photos- my buddy echo
i loved the movement of these leaves and their glowiness (if it isn't a word it should be :) ). the twigs in the background add interest & reinforce the movement. the boken adds a nice contrast to the angularity of the image.
birds of prey. i need to get back to the red tailed hawk. haven't had the oils out for a month. the peregrine falcon is an image transfer of a photo i took at birds of prey in early october.
below is a detail of the image. the transfer was pretty clear. i added a coat of clear gesso over the image and then used colored pencil to fill in where i thought that the misses were really distracting.
the original background was white, because i wanted the transfer color to be good, so now i'm working back into the background. be fun to see where it takes me.
below are a couple of finished 6x6 pieces using laser print image transfers- the first to glass bead gel
the second to fiber paste-
lastly, round 2 of the marker/paint small canvasses
i sold 3 of these in october- small pieces in the print bin for $30- $35, seems like a good thing to keep doing. and they start with doodles, which is a good thing for me to do.
that's it for today. i spent election eve in the studio with lynn, drinking wine, making art. laughing & listening to music. we were pleasantly surprised when we decided to rejoin reality :)
