Joy in Simplicity

Art Joy in Simplicity .. The sea and the beach provide all that is needed for making artful marks 



 



 


 A little pebble doll resting underneath her stone blanket on her rock bed... Summery days are bliss

Ponderings

::: Ponderings :::



Stone by Stone .... Circle by Circle ... Cycle by Cycle 

The perception of rotation holds a convincing argument to the unfettered mind ::: yet crystal clear shards of rememberance appear in timely intervals along the pathway of my soul.

Time in the Print Studio

Time in the Print Studio 



Finally some time for printing, experimenting with water based relief printing inks and a variety of Japanese printing papers to compare results 

The ink used us by a company called Nerchau and is quite sticky in quality, not sure how smooth it is going to dry on large areas if black ..



 Some experiments with chine colle process using mulberry paper, not to keen on the nori glue as it is kind of gloppy and went straight through the paper therefor sticking to the woodcut block ... More play needed 

All on drying rack now
