Natural Stains


I was eating some beetroot the other day and couldn't resisting using the juices as paint. I painted on rice paper which is marvelous fun with beetroot juice and walnut ink then collaged it on a rust print. I apologize for the poor photo...my camera is on it's last legs, time for a new one.

More Ladies

Two Ladies and a Baby
 I did some rust prints with tea and beetroot stains while back. To my surprise  they all had figures in them. Ladies to be exact. I posted the first two last time and after posting them I saw with the aid of the photograph  a baby on one of the ladies backs, tied on with a blanket as they  do in Africa.

My last lady is from my African memories. This is a older lady dreaming of her younger years.
