Quick post

One of the coolest things about desert plants is that they are opportunistic. If they get enough rain, they bloom! So I stumbled upon a paper bag bush in bloom a couple of days ago, and here is the photo. What a cool bush.

Just a quick post, because I have been working on the computer all day, and I am tired!

I got selected to be a juror! The trial starts tomorrow, and the judge said it could last until the 22nd of November! wow. So, even though I cannot blog about the case, I am excited to be a part of this important aspect of a free society.

Here is a monotype for you to enjoy, until I have a chance to write a more lengthy post. This one measures 14 x 11 inches, and I have entitled it "Blooming". Good night!

hi karine!
i love your new monotype! the colors are wonderful! i just love the new pallet you have been working with!
how cool that you were chosen. i was on a jury about 2 years ago and although at first i felt i did not want to be picked, i really enjoyed the whole process.

The bush reminds me a little of bleeding heart blooms.

Your new monotype is very desert-like.

I haven't been selected for jury duty before. It will interesting to hear of your experience.

Really lovely monoprint Karine. Hope your jury duty goes well. Will we be seeing it on CSI?

What a great plant! and really great print, I am lovin' the colors. Good luck with jury duty. I was on a major case once and it was the coolest experience - I learned so much from it and really value the experience.

Your new monotype is beautiful, Karine. I love the orange, yellow combination at the bottom.

Good luck with the jury duty. Let us know how it goes!
