Made two more flower and ink drawings but something seemed lacking so I started cutting up one and gluing it to the other.

everything in place below

hmmm didn’t like the background – grabbed the scissors and mat knife….

now I need a background… found some scrapbook paper.
the mat helps it come together – I know, the photo is a little wonky.

need to get to some Sumi-e cards…. been dragging my feet a little on those but every day for a week I have done some art!
Printing block prints counts – right?
I find getting out of this office/art room gets me away from the distracting PC.

Here are the other four images with mats and yes they are all a little crooked but the mat helps define the image I will frame if they are selected the hang in the Florabunda exhibit ay Ida Culver House Broadview, 12505 Greenwood Ave. N, Seattle

Deadline: May 17, 2014
