Perched

I am so in love with the ghost prints from these gelatin prints. I like them much better than the first print.

I almost lost this piece due to some bad adhering on my part to the substrate. Luckily I was able to salvage a portion of the image, the one with the bird. I do believe I am going to try the dry adhesion process with the tacking iron and release paper. It just isn't worth losing a piece to wrinkles and tears.

I know that there is quite a backlash right now with adding birds to art, but I really love the way this looks. So it is a keeper as far as I am concerned.

Bird and all.

this is amazing! I've lovin your work...I might end up not missing your bead work as much! You have certainly found the right media for another talent you have!

Thanks Robbie. I don't miss any of my past mediums at all. This print making is so interesting to me.

I didn't realize there was a bird backlash. (Does that mean mosaic artists can't make bird backsplashes?) I love this. The evolution of your work continues to fascinate me. Each day a new shape or color or line. Flowing from one to the next.

I love this print. I think the backlash on adding birds is about those cutesy birds. This crow is perfection, but them I LOVE those black birds!

I love the work you are doing in this medium. You certainly are a multi-talented artist.

Merry Christmas.

Thanks Carol and Ginger. There seems to be a standing joke now that in order for something to sell it needs a bird on it. Kind of silly since birds are the most amazing creatures. I never tire of watching them flit and flutter at my feeder.

I didn't know about the bird backlash either. Interesting, just this year I became totally interested in birds in my neighborhood. They're beautiful and fascinating. I love this.
