Day 35

Using a new stencil and it reminded me of energy flowing outward

This is a WIP from the Ardith Goodwin Abstractions class. No where near done

So I scanned a gel print and printed on 2 inch round circles. This is the result. LOL

Did another gel print, but saved it as a PDF instead of JPEG. This is the result

Busy weekend. First, the abstraction class. This canvas still looks too realistic, but this is the starting point, so from here forward I make marks, add paint, collage, whatever to layer it up and abstract it out. Learning a great deal in this class.

Yesterday morning I remembered I had purchased labels, so decided to scan a 12x12 gel print. I have an HP Office Jet printer/scanner, and it only picked up on part of the print. I laid the entire sheet down, trying to put the part I wanted over the scanning area. Did not get that at all, so if anyone has any ideas on why not, I would appreciate your thoughts. When I saved the JPEG, evidently I forgot to resize it and the print came out 5x7, which I believe is default. My fault for not catching that. The next scan I saved as a PDF, it defaulted to black and white, and the 8.5x11 inch format. This is pretty cool, because now I have 2 inch circles with b&w designs.

So much more to do. I have more yard work, the never ending chore list, but today I will reserve an hour to work on the painting. I am stoked.
