I so enjoy one of my current projects, Natured Gathered. It's a series of 12 8 x 8 canvases exploring the natural world with other artists. Hopefully, we will all be gathering in the great Pacific North West in August 2009 for a show!! See details on Jan Harris's blog. Look for Nature Gathered link on right after you've checked her out!!
I spent an afternoon playing with my brayer which is one of my favorite things to do anymore and came up with this fern print that I incorporated into my October piece: Field Notes. This was a fun one to work on...I took a very light hearted approach and just let it unfold.
After scouring through my many reference materials on the natural world I finally found some of Haekel's words that inspired my musings on the mysterious of vegetation on the left hand side of the canvas.
So stop what you are doing....go grab a brayer, some paint and some vegetation and play!!! Then send me photos of what you did...we all want to see.
