I love paint, texture, light and glyphs (aka symbols). I love the alchemy of mono-printing because there are so many surprises!  This a picture of a printing session in my garden studio.  This year, I discovered GelliPlates (tm) and there is no end to the fun with them.  I spread on paint with a brayer, or just drip it on the plate.  Using stencils, found objects and anything else I can find, I make a "big mess" and then apply a piece of paper. The second print, or "ghost print" is often my favorite, as it's usually more subtle and even more of a surprise.  During Open Studios, I will be doing demos of this process, and even offering you a chance to get your hands in the paint.  Come play with me!
