Working through problems


Sleeping dog in sun.Β  Feet and body in shadows. Warm daylight.

I’m amazed the grainy texture is slowly disappearing as new colors are scraped over the top. The image becomes more resolved as it moves along, an interesting process to witness. My cousin recently commented “for someone who claims not to paint, it’s awfully painterly!” Ok, not her exact words but pretty darn close. I guess I have to agree with her. Reduction screen printing is my form of painting.


The relationships are changing between colors as the work grows darker. Areas that once were so prominent start to fade, losing their dominance. I think it’s time to start work on resolving the chair. The dog has gone to the color limit.

Amazing, I think I like it.

    1. Kate, thanks for your offer! I asked Aleta if I could drop the work off on the 30th due to the upcoming Boise trip (she said that would be fine). If I get in a bind, I’ll connect with you for delivery! πŸ™‚
      Hopefully I’m not boring people to tears with all the steps.It’s my way to process things and keep myself moving forward. πŸ™‚

  1. These prints are amazing! I keep imagining all the pictures of my Golden Retriever that would look awesome like this! I also keep envisioning all of these made out of paper, too πŸ˜› Keep up the beautiful artwork, you need more action shots of your painting process because this work is so intriguing!

    1. Katie, thank you! I bet your golden would look lovely as a papercut dog! You should do it!
      Action shots are not my forte mainly because it’s just me during the day in the studio. Plus, I have a hard enough time remembering to take photos at the end of a color run. Now, if I could teach Moby to take my photo, then problem solved! I could probably earn more money if my dog took photos… something to ponder. LOL!
      I’ll keep it in mind for a future posting! Glad you’re enjoying the process. πŸ™‚
