The flowers this year have been spectacular in the Yukon! I only wish I could capture them all in my prints as quickly as their seasons pass. I have been playing with some Lupine images that I carved recently. This is my first attempt at mounting them onto board and colouring them with paint, coloured pencil and chalk pastels. I really enjoy playing with the different colours and mediums! There is still more work to be done, but not a bad start.
Today I have been playing with printing on fabric. It seems like a natural progression for my work. I really enjoy creating images that can be expanded by repetition! That is the technique I have often used, for example on the pieces in 'Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, Art'. So, I took a workshop in May, through Maiwa Handprints in Vancouver and it opened up a whole new world to me! Things have been a bit busy since then and I am finally getting to try some of the stuff I learned.
It's up! The mini gallery that Michael built is up at the end of our driveway in Haines Junction. Thanks to Michael for building it and Chris for putting it up! I am really excited about being able to put together little exhibitions for people passing by to enjoy!
