I was fortunate enough to meet an artist at the drawing sessions who not only has a printing press, but also has offered to let me use it!!! Yesterday, for the first time in over a year, I got to create monotypes. I am so happy! I had so much fun! Thank you, Shant.
This new group of monotypes was inspired by a little desert denizen known as the Cactus Wren. They occasionally come to visit me, and poke around on our back patio. I love these little birds, since they are inquisitive and funny. I had done a series of dime-sized sketches of them in my tiny sketchbook, and I used those sketches for this new work. (along with some feathers the wrens left me as a calling card.)
