MidSummer Maine, the final day

All of the BIG projects are now behind us and we can start to play. We learned about rubbings, stamps, collage and going back into previous work for added layers.

A collage on the cover of a pamphlet

A page of gelli print above. A small rectangle was cut and lines were added with black pen as well as white dots made with correction fluid.

Watercolors painted over oil pastels. What a beautiful effect.

Flooding the surface with water then adding watercolors. They look like blooms.

Drips of watercolors making a grid

Buttons and someone's personal watercolors below.

Drip grids with some areas colored.

Marcella, without whom these workshops would not be as professional, smoothly run or fun. Thank you Marcella for all the years you have assisted me!!

Lunch on the deck!!

One of our favorite things is Saturday night Show and Tell.  Here are Janice and David Jones who are doing work in collaboration. David is an award winning oil painter who has a gallery in Paris and shows there as well. He has painted some works and Janice has used them as an inspiration for Art Quilts.

One of our group had to bow out on Sunday so she missed getting her picture taken with the group.
Sorry about that Laura. See you next year!
