Sometimes I get on a roll when I'm making backgrounds.
January 2nd & 3rd were snow days here in Massachusetts, and I sat down with dozens of blank cards, my gelli plate, and a palette of blue, black and white paint.
Hours passed, and the wet mono-printed cards blanketed every surface of my studio, while the snow worked that same magic outdoors.
The first dozen were emblazoned with bold "2014" stamps, and then I ran out of steam. I've never been much for a holiday theme.
It took several more snowy weekends, but I feel like I really hit my stride with this series, and I'm glad I had so many backgrounds to work with.
Liberal use of circles stamped on tissue paper, handwriting on transparencies, and found text from my magical box of words.
Do the work.
Watch what unfolds.
