MidSummer Maine II day three

It has been an inferno today. We are all limp from the heat and humidity we are NOT used to.


Judith monoprinting


Nice chairs


Kates "Black Lives Matter" monoprint


Paula finishing up her piece.


Again here is Marcella's magic scrapbook paper prints. I forgot to add vinegar to the boil but did add MX dye in (color name) indigo. Unbelievable prints. You go girl!!







By this time we knew which plants printed well: coreopsis, chocolate cosmos, catalpa leaves, peony leaves, wild yarrow, smoke tree leaves, cransbill geranium. We all had a great time and cooled off with cantaloupe left after setting the ground hog trap and cold watermelon. Now for a shower, powder, and a soft chair.

  1. Great work despite the heat! Lovely colours on the prints and I love mono printing for its great sense of freedom and lively marks.

    1. Thanks Louise. I really love monoprinting too. I think it is the "fuzzy" line that I find so appealing.

    1. Yes. Marcella's magic paper really was the winner. If I decide to do more of these I will use HEAVY mulberry paper and steam them.

  3. Judith's chairs inspire me to be more courageous with my own mono-printing. Great work!

    1. I agree. It's a matter of getting the amount of ink correct on the "plate" and being careful not to touch the paper to prevent pressure ink marks!!
