I'm also excited about working on some new collage work. I like to paint my own patterned paper and characters, which I then cut out and juxtapose with images from vintage books. I just place things next to each other until they make sense, and then the glue comes out. I pair images with phrases I have painted in ink. They can be overheard snippets of conversation, dialog from a movie, or lines from songs and poems.
Eric is also working on new prints. Just today he finished a new carving of the Golden Gate Bridge. He pulled a proof on the press, was pleased, and then went off to watch the Forty Niners/Packers game!
I am enjoying the calm today, listening to Alison Krauss radio on Pandora and drinking tea.
Last month, this was the usual scene at weekends, a studio full of visitors and me walking around with an iPad taking Square payments. I like that too of course!
