"old garden" monotype 18" x 24"
Here is one of my monotypes - a print made on a slab of gelatin with printmaking ink - one of a kind print. It is my favorite way of working through ideas for my paintings later. This one is part of a series called "Gardens" This old garden with it's iron gate fencing is representative of this time of year in New Hampshire. Yarrow growing pink finally and the roses giving up the go ... Change in the garden seemed like a good topic for Illustration Friday. Go see more change at Penelope Dullaghan's site. Change is good. Speaking of change ...
Tonight is our new opening - Two Views of Tuscany and Flora and Fauna. Lots of bustling around yesterday, painting a wall or two a fabulous shade of pumpkin, and setting up a window display which we are just thrilled about. Will show photos this weekend of the opening!
The word for the day is ... compost ... as in well, you know, "Compost Happens!" -- direct qoute from professional artist and semipro composter/gardener/lover of all things which grow green: Mary Ellen McKeen.
