cyanotype, plate and exposed print



If you are not familiar with the cyanotype process... which I am just beginning to learn about... here is a photo of the glass plate that I painted the image on.
The brown behind it is a piece of wood that I use as a backing so I have a dark background when working on the glass . The print is not a fabulous exposure. It was a sort of cloudy day. so much to learn , such a fun process.

abundance , (in process still),12x24" liquid acrylic, mixed media on wood


As this painting progresses I realize it is about positive energy. I want it to project a feeling of love and abundance.

trick or treat, in process, 18x24" liquid acrylic and mixed media on wood


I started this painting in December 07. I was thinking about seeds, veins and particles.It was totally abstract at that time.I worked a long time on it, but felt like I was slogging through mud, deep mud. I finally put it away to stew for a while. Last weekend I found it again while putting some paper away and thought I would play with it a bit and out came the figures. It isn't finished yet...but has a direction.

more cyanotype


this is the first state of a cyanotype I did earlier in the week, the central area is a bit vague and needs some work, but I love this process! It reminds me of the look of a lithograph.I feel like there is so much experimentation to explore with cyanotype. I really don't know much about it, just diving in.
On a totally different note.... I now have satellite internet so I am no longer on dial up and I can post images from home instead of going into my office and spending time doing it when I have so many other things I need to be doing, like organizing my office. Anyway off to the studio for the day, hopefully to conclude at least one of the many paintings that I am working on as well as probably getting some more painted glass panels ready for more cyanotype play time. Since it is going to rain, I will wait to develop them when it is a sunny day.

cyanotype, 2guys 13x19 on stonehenge paper

after attending a cyanotype workshop recently, I have been playing nonstop with the process. I love it. I am painting on glass then using that as my negative which I then develop in the sun. So Fun,
