Oil monotypes sometimes suggest a subject
which is unusual for the artist. The background for the figure was created by spraying the plexi glass plate with solvent and running it through the press to lift the residue of paint . No amount of brush work could achieve that background.
I took a break after a fall and the ensuing activities from it. I'm back, the shoulder onto which I landed is almost normal, I was "lucky" that no bones were broken but it lead to a serious retina detachment surgery and eventually cataract surgery. Since November last year until now.I have been inactive with the Blog and FB.
My pottery and painting continue to be my pleasure , did a bit of watercolor teaching and have challenged myself to abstracts and oil painting.

Using sketches, color notes and photos to paint in my home studio, oils have such a wonderful difference from watercolor , it makes me rethink a lot of the process of painting.
