A friend of my husband saw my work and then went home. A few days later he sent me the following link. I want to use some of these images as inspiration for my work. Check it out and tell me which are your favorites.
Enjoy these beautiful images.

The Wave, The Ocean

I have discovered a way to make my own templates so that I can control the way the paper is pushed away from my printing surface. This template is one large spiral. See more of my art at:

Step by Step. Beach Stones

Sometimes inspiration comes at the oddest times. The inspiration for this series came while I was in the bathroom looking at my bath mat. 'Hmmm', says I, ' I wonder what would happen if...' So I took the bath mat into my studio and here is a series of photos of what evolved.

Here is the raw print created by the mat.                   I next went over the print with water and a brush
                                                                                  and removed some of the pigment from the stones.

The paint is removed. I then went                                   Here, on the left, you can see the stones             back and erased more pigment.                                        emerging. This took hours before I could
                                                                                         begin to draw into the print.

Swim for the Surface

This piece was created by pulling the paper up from the painted surface by all four corners. The coolness of it makes me think of being in the water. Imagine swimming toward the light. 

Splat, A Bug's Life

I have been creating my own templates to vary the way the paper and the printing surface are separated. 
This template has 8 'U' shaped channels cut through it. I use rigid tub caulk that comes on a roll to push 
the paper away from the template. This did not create the pattern I had intended but I find it pretty 
interesting anyway.

Wings, Butterfly, Butterfly Wing

This is one of my early experimental pieces and is still one of my favorites. After the print was pulled I removed quite a bit of the pigment using brushes and water. Then colored pencil was used to add deeper shadows and clarity. Visit my website to see how my work has evolved.

Trumpet Vine, Flowers

This piece was created by pulling up the corners of the paper until the paper was at its halfway point. Then it was lifted off of the pigment. Do you see the trumpet vine? To see more of my work please visit:
