Okay, I went to the camel farm and saw all these really fascinating animals and then I was trying to get something on paper
to just get started back into making art. It's very hard to get back to work after a move for some reason. I dunno, dragging yourself half way across the world shouldn't be that big a deal, right? On my own defense, I am getting better, I mean this is only my 4th week and I have already produced something, questionable as it may be, that's pretty good considering it's usually taken a year or two to get back in the studio in the past after a major move like this! I'm feeling pretty good about that! This is not really what I had in mind for camel interpretation but I learned some things. This is the first time I have worked directly with a brush painting an image on the plate. I used a piece of Bahraini news paper as a Chine Colle' collage piece and unfortunately don't have any spray adhesive due to the fact that the shipping company wont' ship anything under pressure. Imagine that! So, I used matt medium which is sort of wet and it made the paper stick to the plate instead of the printing paper. I had to rewind and repress then heat the back of the paper with a hair dryer to get the collage background piece to adhere to the paper and let go of the plate. Ahhh, printing on the cutting edge! LOL! I feel sort of like the McGuiver of my personal art corner.
