My husband and I have decided to self-isolate for 30 days. We both have compromised immune systems. We will only go out for absolutely necessary appointments. So, what to do for 30 days? MAKE PRINTS!
Luckily I have a lot of Arches Paltine paper and chemicals to make salt, platinum, VanDyke and cyanotype prints. If I run out I can order through the mail. This week I’ve made more salt prints. I’m loving the art of contact printing . I’m still learning, but so far I’m pretty happy with my results.
I’m thinking of experimenting on my failures with water colors . For now I continue to make more negatives and print.
If you are stuck inside because of this virus that is attacking the world, why not try something new or keep perfecting something you like doing…..with art. We will get through this pandemic and be back out in the world soon. I have another trip planned to England so we must all get well. Take care of yourselves, family and friends.
