BUGGY BATIK

It's workshop week at Miami University - in OHIO, (not near the ocean.) This campus is old, beautiful, well maintained, and a delightful university town.

This batik, not reproduced here to its advantage (sorry,) was created almost ten years ago after a trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, at Mackinaw Island with a painting friend. This digital shows the picture as being way too blue and dark. I had a disc made from slides of paintings I'd done earlier and can't seem to get the correct coloring on my screen. I hope you get the idea.

Sandy, I've added the new blogger feature to my blog and I get your up-to-the-minute postings on your blog. It's a great feature -- now see I see your new work hot off the easel.

I LOVE your work!

I love the spottiness of it. It gives it a great sense of movement. And, cameras rarely do justice to artwork.

Hope you're enjoying your workshop and have a lot of enthusiastic students - and hope you are traveling in better style than this old horse drawn buggy :)
