Rounding the corner....

My recent activities have allowed me to step away from my work for a little bit and let it settle down in my head. I needed this sifting to occur, as I am now able to sort which works will be shown and what will be seen another time.

I have spent time with my niece before she started kindergarten, had a couple of days with my goddaughter, spent a few days out with some longtime friends, and I have attended a Master gardener workshop:

I can say I am in the home stretch of preparations...frames are in the house and the mat board is here, now the labor. Cutting mats and framing the work, I actually love this part....all the work is done and the final look is about to be assembled.

My new cyanotypes are large and are my newest love...they are the second part of the theme. These lovelies will be displayed in the studio area of Gallery 255, meaning you will have to seek them out!
I have yet to mention what this theme is, but that will be revealed in the next day or so...
I love surprises, don't you?

Currently printing new work!!

I have been quietly and slowly printing work at home these days.
My lovely new press is divine and I am falling in love with it!
It is pure joy to be able to print from home with a sleepy cat at my feet and warm light coming thru the windows.

I am preparing for an upcoming show (September 12th it opens!) and I am trying to pace myself for it; as I love the rush to a deadline, but I also dread it. I hope to make this a lovely collected chaos for myself.

Postcards go out soon, and in this day and age of "evites", I still relish in sending out cards via post!
I had to budget for the postage, so not everyone I have on my list will get a card, but I hope to still inform everyone of the show one way or another.

I have been working on a theme for many months now and I will be displaying my newest work in this show. Both my solarplates and cyanotypes can be seen.
Larger scales and new images.

back to the press, and watch for more information soon.
