Wow, it's been so long since I've blogged,
that I barely remember how to do it!
Suffice it to say that my life has been busy!
I completed all 36 rounds of radiation
on April 25th, and I am so thrilled
to have that final leg of my cancer journey behind me.
We spent a few very relaxing days away with friends,
and since then I have begun to try to catch up
here at home.
I'm gardening a lot and just enjoying
being out in the yard listening to the birds call
and feeling the warm breezes on my face.
Life is good!!
We have a wonderful old Painted Buckeye tree
in our yard
and I wanted to do some work with it.
I picked one small branch the other day,
sketched the beautiful blossom
and the leaves,
and then today I did some monoprinting
of the leaves,
using my large Gelli Print Plate.
I had prepared some fabric in advance,
but then, as usual, I got carried away
and just started grabbing any spare fabric
that was laying around in the studio.
So, I ended up with layers upon layers!
It was great fun,
and I totally lost track of the time.
Here are a few more of the prints:
…..after all, it is a 'painted' Buckeye, right!!!
The following print
was done on an old striped bed sheet
which had belonged to my Mom…..
yes, I hang onto almost everything!
It will definitely be used.
Here is my month of April
according to my Photo 365 app:
It was a brilliant month….but aren't they all?
Thanks for stopping by!
Peace to you and yours!
