I went to my friend Shant's house yesterday to use his press. I had the most magical day with monotype printmaking I have had in a long time!!! It was such a great day. I had so much fun, and I really love what I did. I was going to quickly scan a favorite from the day, to post, but apparently, my scanner is on the fritz!!! Oh no! I am not happy about that. I hope it isn't broken.
I guess I will have to post some other photos, to tide you over until I can figure out what's wrong with my scanner. Even though I am seeing more and more green things poking their little heads out of the desert sand, I am still photographing the dried flower bracts that remain from last summer. No one knows why.
I have been making a concerted effort to stop eating all the junk food that the holidays got me into the habit of. Unfortunately, I suffered a major setback today, when I could hear a pint of Ben and Jerry's NY Super Fudge Chunk calling my name. Yes, I went to the store to purchase ONE THING - that aforementioned ice cream. I then drove home and proceeded to eat half of it!!!! So much for my efforts at healthiness. Already, my pants feel a bit tighter. I will have to run far tomorrow, to make up for my food indiscretion. I think I am going to blame it on hormones.
Here is a monotype I reworked with pastel. I printed it just before the end of 2008. I don't think I've posted it yet, but if I have, I apologize! It measures 8 x 10 inches, and I titled it "Unforgettable Fire".
