More from the same series

Forth in Series
As with the first three prints that I posted yesterday
I just continued each successive print from the previous print's ghost, adding new elements as I went along.

Something New

First in series

Second in Series
I  decided to play around with the camel stamps I made and just see what came up and here is the result.  I just kept reworking the ghost plate from each pull and so there are several variations on the original theme.
Third in Series

Wow! Thanks for the support!

 I am so humbled and amazed that there are actually 101 people out there that are willing to regularly come check in on my blog and check my progress from time to time!  Geez, I will have to get back to work so there is something for you to follow! LOL! Actually you are all a big part of my art world  especially as I use my blog as an incentive to keep working since I have been moving around so much lately.  Sometimes you just need a push to keep going kind of like having a workout partner in an exercise program. All of your input and comments mean so much to me and are so uplifting.  Thanks so much to all of you, I really appreciate your following my blog!

Camel vs. Aspen!

Too funny! I just realized that the pose of this camel is almost exactly the pose of
my little studio dog, Aspen!  Am I attracted to the same pose in all animals? Hmmm.
A Series perhaps?.....We'll see, I am so predictable after all! LOL!

Birth of Venus as a Camel?

I think with a shell under her... Okay, maybe it just felt like a birthing!  It's not always easy to make an image in stamp or print form, at least for me.  There are just so many ways you could go with the design.
This is the same camel that I used for the monoprint with the camel.  I liked her pose.  I have other camel images I am working with from different views.  This image is 5.25".

Here is a view of the stamps themselves and the image test page.  I thought these smaller camels in a
line would make good design pattern elements that could be versatile.

Confession of a stalled artist!

I have been spending a lot of time in my studio looking at stuff I have got started but can't go forward with. I should show you photos of all my working surfaces so you can see what all i have got going on, but not! LOL!  Man oh man, there is a lot of contemplation that goes on before the light comes on here in the center of my universe.  It is uncomfortable if not painful. Kind of like trying to swallow a pill that will not go down!  I'm listening to Cheryl Crow's Shine over Babylon as a coincidence! LOL! Better art prospects to all my Arty friends! (heart)
