Worktable Wednesday - Printing Again

At long last, the sun. I was beginning to lament that we would be socked in fog for another 4 weeks so I high tailed it up to the mountains where I was sure to be able to expose my SUN plates so that I could start printing.

Sure enough, the second day home it's been nothing but beautiful, bright shining days. Still, I have plates to print which makes me happy. Dog prints no less. I do have more landscape images in the works but the dog obsession has not diminished one iota, so why not... dog prints!

Worktable Wednesday - computer day

Camping and our local mountains are foremost in my mind today as I sit preparing my next collection of stamps for production. I am creating a grouping of creatures from our local forest along with the human experiences of camping in our wilderness.

Working on the computer all day... not my favorite thing to be doing. Spending time dreaming about my next adventure in the pines.... makes it more pleasurable.

The prototypes will be in the shop by the end of the month and the manufactured versions by the end of July {fingers crossed!} You will know when I know. Happy trails.

Oh happy day!

What a grand surprise and start to June. LOOK what showed up on my doorstep today from the ever talented Teresa Zepeda! Such a lucky girl am I...

The amazing Teresa is a printmaker. I have gushed about her before, her impeccably outrageous technique in silkscreen. This one steals my own heart as the dog looks so much like my Skye...but I can't stop staring at it because, well, it's Teresa's, super-dilly-icous, edible art. Thank you thank you thank you.

Gone to the dogs

Scenes from my studio... all paintings in progress. 
I've become a dog lady and I ain't too proud to admit it!
