New Posts along the Art Journey

Three weeks ago I traveled to Dallas for the annual Southern Graphics Conference. There were three days of meeting with colleagues from all over the U.S., sharing new artmaking techniques, exhibits at 5 diffrerent colleges in the Dallas and Ft. Worth area, and seeing collections in the area museums.

A memorable exhibit was a temporary exhibit at the Dalls Art Museum of Berthe Morisot's work. Morisot is the best known  French female Impressionist. I was surprised to learn that she was married to French Impressionist Edouard Manet's younger brother. I also learned that she had an equally talented older sister who gave up making art for life as a wife and mother. Here is a portrait of Berthe Morisot painted by her sister.

Watercolor and Collagraph Continued

One More Watercolor and Collagraph Combination

Flowers and Lace
This reworked watercolor is less abstract than yesterday's, but has more contrast and sparkle.


New Ideas with Old Materials

Nets 1, Collagraph over watercolor. Hand-coloring prints is an old technique. This weeks I have reversed the process and printed on top of watercolors. My first piece suggest and aerial view of land and sea and nets being flung.
