This has been a good week. I am finally getting back into the studio and getting work done. I'm also having fun. I eased into it by making some simple prints, 4 x 4in, that will be great as handprinted cards. These are like the first clown print I made. One of the designs I liked the flow of so I enlarged it to 12 inches and made it into a painting. It's a lighthearted colourful work. I am now in the process of doing a companion piece from one of the other designs and that's coming along nicely.
I have also nearly finished the combined painted / printed work mentioned in previous posts and will post a photo once it is finished. In many ways I prefer the piece I did on paper to this one on board however I have learned a lot from the process and can see possibilities for future works.
I am also eager to do some more serious printmaking so lots to think about. Today however I am hanging some of my musical works in The Toronto Institute for the Enjoyment of Music, a new music school in down town Toronto on trendy Queen West. It's a lovely space and I will be showing my work there on an ongoing basis.
