It is time to get around to posting again - it seems like years since I've entered anything. Come to think of it, I was always like that with diaries, too. Xmas would come and I would always get at least one and in the end I have a library of diaries with entries through the first two weeks of January and blank from then on. That was mostly because I felt that my life was so mundane and uneventful that there was nothing interesting to write. Little did I know that those would be among the most interesting days of my life!
But, just because I haven't been writing doesn't mean nothing has been happening around here. Which Witch? was a fairly easy print to compose, but getting that black, black, blue black background was a bit tricky. And finding the right chine collé paper was a task with pitfalls, too. Paper too thin, too thick, not the right color - eek. Finally, I went with what I had in the drawers and was pleased with the way the green grapes and the table cloth compliment. At the opening of the exhibition Friday night I was amazed at the number of people who couldn't find the witches even when they were pointed out!
Which Witch? is a Solarplate™ print measuring approximately 14" x 16.5" and printed intaglio. Incidentally, those witches are both very nice, gentle people, strictly vegetarian, maybe a glass of potion now and then, but basically of high moral character and pillars of their respective covens. Nothing to fear from these two - they haven't cast a spell in so long that they have completely forgotten all incantations. They were good studio mates and kept up an interesting banter throughout the process. ;-)
