gelli prints

Passed many hours this last week gelli printing.  The second to the last print I added some more color with inktense, gesso, and rubber stamping.

dilly bird

I did this intuitive painting today, it is my first attempt.  I have never worked this way so wasn't sure what would happen.  Dilly bird came out twice so I kept him.  I used brush tip Faber Castell pitt markers, gesso and finished with gel pen.

I was waiting for a phone call from the hospital to schedule a test.  I finally went to the doctor for my belly pain, as my husband put it, "my gallbladder is going out".

by my bed

kuba cloth gelli collage

I reworked this collage last week.  It hangs above my bed and was inspired by this scarf I made last year.
I like it a lot better.  I wanted it to mimic the fabric but using some kuba cloth designs.  I added the cigar band stripes, because they had the gold I wanted in the collage.  Also, changed up the color on the beige and blue stripes.

My husband thinks I'm ocd because he liked it before.  I think I'm silly because I keep my bedroom so dark no one would ever know the beige was wrong.

This a shot of the before.  I felt the color was off and it needed more definition between the stripes.  I guess I really didn't like it because I couldn't find a picture of it hanging.

My husband has replaced the cheap pocket door in the master bedroom and now is ready to paint!  I'm going with the Behr mocha latte, chocolate paint color in there and the master bath.  Can't wait to see it all finished!

dog bed

Riki got another new bed today.  He is so spoiled.  I removed about half the stuffing since this photo, it looked more like a bean bag chair, so full.  He likes it both ways.  I made this one out of a dark brown, fine wale cotton corduroy.  The flash on my camera makes the color change in the photo.

He didn't feel good today.  Turns out, eating my baskets doesn't sit well with his digestion.  Poor little dog.  I babied him, even though I wanted to spank his butt.

new flannel

Forgot to post a shot of my new flannel.  I really would like to design flannel.  Not many good choices for art pants.  I would love to see more batik and mud cloth inspired flannel.  Wouldn't you?
