I realize that I haven't been much of a blogger lately. Sorry! I guess I just haven't felt much like being on the computer. The good news is that I have been in the studio, so you will have images of new art coming very soon. Hopefully, I will also become more frequent with my blog posts.
Here is one new monotype, that I created just before the holidays hit full force. It isn't my favorite one, but I do like things about it, and I think the jackrabbit turned out pretty well. I drew the rabbit onto a piece of cardboard, then I cut it out. After I inked the plate, I inked the rabbit and placed him (her?) on top! I would like the jackrabbits better if they didn't eat every darn plant in my yard!!!
I leave you with another photograph of desert mistletoe, or phoradendron californicum. It is living off of a cat's claw acacia. I remember last spring, it was one of the first things to bloom, and the blossoms have the most beautiful fragrance. The bees love it! If you want to read just a bit more about it, click here. I tried to get a close up shot for you, but all of the close ups I took were blurry. Breathing too hard from running, I guess! I'll try again, but not tomorrow. Tomorrow I am going to watch our new president get inaugurated!!!
