Red Challenge

Red Challenge
 
 
 
 
 
 
Homecoming
 
This piece is from a series of collographs onto mulberry paper called " Home". I have been working towards a solo show that is coming up in late summer using variations of this format and now have some larger pieces completed toward my goal.
 I find that they are starting to resemble still life compositions at times, though quite misty, seen from above, and all continue to be anchored in thoughts about the necessity of a safe harbor in which to feel at peace.
 The closest I could get to the red was the small area in the picture of pink/orange but I notice this one would also nicely fit into the periwinkle section. I guess it is still on the brain as a very useful colour!

  1. Yes, I wondered if you had forgotten the new colour. It's a lovely piece with soft soothing colours - including the red.

  7. I am always fascinated by your pieces and how you work your colours. The misty and abstract look draw you in.

  8. You are getting some intriguing textures with your collographs. I like the combination of the sketchy line and the washes of colour.

  9. Love the softness of the piece - you have got this technique down to a fine art and all your pieces are really nice.
