The Favorite

This is my favorite from Saturday's batch of prints, I just adore it. Right now I love it and want to get it out to a good home, but sometimes I want to raise the price so it is less likely to sell and I can keep it. It is interesting that this very blue piece appeals to me so much. In the past I only used blue to make others happy and to break out of a color rut. But this time was different, I did it for me and felt comfortable working with the color and I think it shows in the results.

Lately I have been in a bit of a format, design rut. I am sketching a lot and really looking at the world. With Jon out of town I have a lot of time to take walks and look at things. I have some new designs and new formats (not 6"x6") in the works. I ordered some supplies to experiment with monotypes some more. Hopefully I won't start a fire this time! No burning candles in the studio ever again, no mater how stinky the smoke from downstairs is.

An apt title. It's calming and refreshing at the same time. The different transparencies (of the leaves)just draw you in. Love it!

You in a rut? Inconceivable. ;-]
