The woods have bloomed in earnest the past week under the influence of long sunny days. These salmon berry flowers behind our house caught my camera eye.
I think we can expect a good crop of berries later this summer. I like to eat salmon berries with shortcake and whipped cream. They also make a workmanlike jelly if mixed with a stronger flavored juice like apple or raspberry.
Now I want to give you a glimpse of two new paintings:
|'City on the Hill' (working title) acrylic and paper on canvas, approx. 18"x24"|
|'Fan' (working title) acrylic and paper on watercolor paper, approx. 22"x34"|
The spring weather has put these efforts on the back burner as it is now warm enough to dye in my studio!
|I mixed up Procion colors on Monday, after drawing and printing with thickened black dye on dry, soda-soaked cotton for three days.|
|A big panel, covered with plastic to cure until my next studio day tomorrow.|
I can't wait to get back there tomorrow, but for now Flossy and I are off to the Mighty Mighty Day Job. Happy day to all!
