Grasses

Grasses by Roberta Warshaw

Originally this was going to be a cactus collage. But then there were these lovely lines and before I knew it, the cactus became the tips of some type of hay or grass.

The element of surprise with these gelatin prints is what keeps me coming back for more. I can plan all I want but as soon as I begin adhering all bets are off.

I am not sure just how much I will be getting done this week painting-wise. I am hosting Thanksgiving this year and for the next few days the house will be filled with all the good cooking smells of the holiday.

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I love that it is not religious in any way. Just food and family.

Of course it is always my children's birthdays as well so pumpkin pie always has birthday candles stuck in it.

Enjoy your holidays and don't eat too much!

I love the new header, too. (Is that what you call the print at the top of the page with your name?) Anyway, these gelatin prints and collages are just beautiful. Your whole journey and transition has been fascinating.
Have a great Thanksgiving with your family!
