This is where it started. I tried cutting circles out of the long piece in the photo above and there were too many gaps between the fish. Then I got up this morniung and had to face the prospect of making a plane reservation for Nick, my husband, who really didn't have a plan. Not to mention that I can't go on this trip for various reasons. So I was in a funk. Art is a funk breaker so I set up a table and went to work.
It took a long time to get the ink right. I though I had printed with way more black, but I think the match is adequate-once it is cut up and stitched.
A mandela arangement of the salmon stamp.
Another killer whale that I am not too happy with.
Humpback which I totally love-I plan to cut circles out of this piece.
The best of the first set of killer whale stamps.
Another new less than perfect Killer whale-getting better though! Like I said-art is restorative. Even though it is not perfect work, I am feeling much better!
