The last post of 2012!

The holidays are a tough time to get things done in the studio even for those of us who are Jewish!

This year I made a small Thanksgiving for my family instead of going to relatives. Then Chanukah came right away after that and I had my annual Chanukah brunch with all the latke making that goes with that!

My kids and grandson all have birthdays at that time so there was that going on.

Then on Christmas, even though I am Jewish, I still enjoy preparing a feast for my family. This year I made my first roast beef.

We also met some new cousins this week and spent lovely hours over lunch getting to know one another. It was really wonderful and a big highlight of the holidays for me.

So between all these things, I have not been able to get much done in my studio. Instead I thought I would show you some samples of the textures I have been making for my gelatin prints. I find that string and thread make the loveliest textures. I like them even better than the stamps I had on hand. The gelatin picks up every little nuance of the yarn or string and makes for some very interesting results.

Hopefully after the holidays I can get back to work. I really want to re-open my Etsy shop with some of my collages as well as some cards.

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Oh and PS, I sold 4 pieces this week! Exciting!
