Art for Appetizers – In the field!
While glamping around at the beach, I took some time out to set up art supplies on the picnic bench and do some botanical printing. Using found flowers and leaves from the morning walk… I coated them with acrylics and pressed them onto envelopes, paper and ATCs.
It was fun watching the accidents happen, exploring different paper surfaces, finding out what kinds of plants worked better than others. The picnic bench made a great outdoor studio until the afternoon thunderstorms let go in surprise downpours. Then it was a mad dash to gather everything up and escape into dryness.
