i apologize for not posting in a while due to tech issues. i am still having
problems with my photo program but i managed to get this photo.
hopefully this will be resolved soon. it only stopped the creative juices
for a short time while i fretted
i have been learning something new...a friend invited me to work on her printing press.
it has been oh so much fun. i am not sure that i can full describe the process so it's clear
but i will try. first, an image is painted on a plexiglass sheet. when the image is completed
paper is soaked in water, blotted to a damp dry and set on top of the painted plexiglass.
this is run under a large metal drum. after the piece is rolled, the paper lifted
there is a surprise on the other end. sometimes it works, sometimes
not in the intended way. This image that i am showing is from a magazine photo of lady gaga.
i painted her using only black printers paint. i thought i'd start simple with one color.
after it was printed i took a photo. i made a copy of the photo
on tissue paper to collage on a painted and collaged cradle board.
it sounds way more complicated than it actually is. i will take photos to show.
i want am excited to incorporate more of the printing into my painting and collages.
thank your for visiting
today i am linking to painting party friday
