Fat flakes…

No, I’m not talking ABOUT anyone…

It’s been snowing steadily all morning with the fattest flakes I have ever seen.  It’s like tissue paper confetti.  I tried to take a photo of the flakes, but they don’t seem to show up at all in the pictures. 


I’m still working in drawings, mostly.  I JUST ordered supplies for pronto printing, so I’m going to use these drawings as a basis for that printing.  I am just exploring lines and patterns, really.  I make a line, then just see where it goes.  It’s kind of freeing to just start a drawing, with no plan about where it’s going.  Each mark just reacts to the mark beforehand…

I did manage to do one print.  Here it is…

All of these seem to have that “primordeal” look to them.  I just find that these are the types of marks that I like to make!  A micro world…what do you think?

Your blog is fantasic and I have just spent the last hour looking at what you have been doing.. Clever you.. there is so much stuff I really like. lovely lines,flowing shapes, subtle colour and very useable. The last picture of the print in your latest post just begs to be printed on cloth and embroidered.. My fingers itch to do it all the way from Frankston where it is cool and damp and I am trying to find time to paint.I will keep reading with interest to see all your work. Ruth

Ruth! Thank you so much!!! I really appreciate your kind words. You should also start a blog, so that we can keep up with all of your work as well! If you don’t have time to paint, you must be doing all sorts of other wonderful things…send a picture when you can. 🙂
