acrylic inks, gesso, image transfer on w/c paper, 10 X 11″
Suzy redhead rules her world, takes her magic carpet ride each day, orange cat by her side. There’s no place too far to fly on her magic carpet bed with the apple trees outside, and the cows next door. The fabric of each day has enough colors to last, enough textures and smells, sights and sounds to entertain. And then there’s the firefly nights. . .
Every once in a while I like to pull out some old pictures and do an image transfer with them. I recently discovered that if you’re careful, you can do an instant transfer with gel or even matte medium (using a toner/laser print, not ink jet). That’s what I was demonstrating in Mon. Muse group.
When I was in first grade we lived on Cowenton Ave. in Maryland, next to the cows and down the lane from the chickens. And there was a mini apple orchard in our front yard. Small wonder I once again have found my way to living amongst the apples. And something we don’t have here in California – those magic firefly nights!
