In the studio, I'm working on a scratch-back piece of claybord, liberally covered with alcohol inks...and it's taking forever (Alice, I'll get you back for this madness!). Note the subtlety of the colour combination.
In the kitchen again I'm stirring chocolate and some of that raspberry puree together to make some chocolate raspberry sauce. WARNING: Yummy to the nth degree, and very addictive.
This 3 x 3" miniature painting includes a Gelli printed background, a sticky dog-hair removal strip used to clean up the Gelli plate, and a paper towel that soaked up a beet juice spill in the kitchen...nothing goes to waste in either location!
Meanwhile, I steal as much time as possible in the studio just to keep my sanity...bless those Gelli plate inventors!
I tell myself I'm getting my exercise climbing up and down the stairs between the kitchen and studio. What stories are you telling yourself about your summer?
