Working with the gel prints reminds me that I haven't done any for quite a long time but when I was cleaning in the studio last week I came upon a stash of "first drafts" that I left here years ago.
For those of you not familiar with mono printing...it is quite common to take first prints or ghost prints (2nd prints) and then re-purpose them with another layer or two of prints or stenciling to complete them.
So I think that most of my mono-printing will now be done at home in Madison, I am taking all the first drafts back with me and hope to get inspired this winter to go down to the University Woods art studio and spread them out and finish them!
We have about a week left here (with fun company) and then back to Madison for two weeks. We hope to come up the end of August again.
The first acorns are falling on the cabin roof now.
We had 8 loons visiting on the lake this week! (very common in July) but all but our pair have gone now. This summer the loons raised a baby which has been fun to watch.
