Creative Meditation #13: The Color of Imagination

Mother’s Day was spent with two of my favorite mothers–my Cinci sisters, Ev and Becky. They are both artists in their own rights and share the need to create and appreciation for beauty. On Sunday afternoon, we went to the Duveneck Art Show in Covington. When they picked me up,  I had just finished experimenting with prints. his time, I offset background texture with paint dripped on a plexiglass plate. I overprinted with three different foam stamps I made previously and finally drew over the layers with watercolor pencils–all on brown paper intended for charcoal drawing.

It’s whimsical, springlike and gave me some flow time and ideas about other artwork I’m working on. It was a stretch into a different palette of color and imagination.
