Still being unable to meet at our venue we held our second virtual social day on Monday. Here’s what some of our members have been doing.
Another virtual social day and I have to decide what to do. I thought I had better make some cards as our exhibition is only about ten weeks away now. So I pulled out my Gelli plate and my acrylics and started printing. I used stencils and handmade paper and commercial acrylic paper.
It was fun but I missed chatting and catching up with other members.
My title is: Still Life with Single Malt, and it is mixed media incorporating plant materials, handmade paper, thread, and paint.
This is an experiment for Deep Sea Creatures – the idea came from a newspaper article about a submersible discovering a 2m high “waffle-cone” sea-sponge.
During this isolation I have been able to get out decades of my work to sort through. There are several large boxes of handmade paper which can be reused, printed, collaged, etc.. I hope to be able to work on some before our next exhibition.
I’ve been exploring Gelli plate printing with the addition of painting and drawing.
Today we have a new great grandchild so it has been hard to concentrate on doing anything but I have made a pair of origami earrings. Our daughter Diana is very good at origami and has been pushing me with my clumsy fingers. (Webmaster Note: Janet is very good at origami jewellery and could show the rest of us a thing or two!)
I have been working on a 30 day challenge of doing a page in a sketchbook each day. Here are some of mine.
Missing the days at Primrose…
Webmaster: Thanks everyone for sharing your work. This is a great way to stay connected and see what each of us is doing, but I know we all can’t wait to get back to Primrose Park. Fingers crossed it won’t be too long now.
