Along the Trail

New in my shop:
Along the Trail
8 x 8 Mixed Media

My interpretation of the trail to the bluff at Ft Ebey on Whidbey Island; one of our favorite camping destinations.

Nature Prints

Spent some art time with friends yesterday. Wendy showed us a new trick with her large die cutting machine that was very cool. Mono-printing/pressing with dried plants. Ink/acrylic paint is applied to the cutting plate, dried plants arranged and then pressed onto heavy paper in the machine. 
Here's my first attempt - using printing ink. (Colors are not true)

First print - 
The plant material was then removed and remaining ink pressed next. 

Second Print - showing the paint left behind. (This is my favorite)

Final print laying the plant material with ink side up. 

I love the possibilities, and will be revisiting this technique. And I may need that large die cutting machine. ;) 

Happy Friday!
