Why not hot pink?

So, I finally finished my blob serigraphs (screenprints).  Here is the step right before completion:

And here is how they turned out:

A single print:

And a detail:

So, what do you think?  Thumbs up, down, or no comment? 

I also worked on some monoprints today.  I forget if they are “monoprints” or “monotypes“.  Clearly, a novice printer.  See my color theme?:

And a detail:

Are you bored yet?  I get tired of putting in these photos.  Well, I had fun doing these!  I also have a picture of something that I got at Boston’s Bazaar Bizarre, made by Raeburn Ink:

Isn’t it so neat?  I love hot pink, and this squishy scarf had hot pink puffy clouds silkscreened onto it.  MINE! (hmm…should have used the fuzzy filter in photoshop elements…need to hide the scar on my chin…)

Needless to say, I went to the craft show today for the Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston.  SO RIDICULOUS.  The stuff was INCREDIBLE.  I cannot emphasize that enough.  SUCH beautiful things.  All the ladies that lunch were there buying $600 shawls.  I was envious, needless to say.  I walked out with a book.  You know that you can’t afford anything when each booth has small signs in a corner showing you the meager “UNDER $100” items.  Sigh.  Seriously, this show is at the cyclorama in Boston through the weekend.  Really REALLY amazing stuff.  Just take out a loan, if you plan on purchasing anything…but the prices were completely justified.  The works were so beautiful.  Anyone planning on going?

I’m glad not everyone pleaded the 5th. You may want to live the life of ladies who lunch (or at least have their bank accounts) but I want your life…except I guess it would be a waste of my time since I completely lack talent. It’s so fun watching your inner artist come unfold. Hot pink, who woulda thunk (OK, so maybe your Christmas tree had an idea)

Yes, my life seems to have a color theme at the moment.

Hey, you ARE talented! You just aren’t interested in making blobby prints…you have other interests/talents…(writing, cooking, being a good mom, being a good friend, did i mention cooking?)
