Day 306. Metal Monoprint Bird

1 Nov

Today’s Bird-A-Day art is an experiment on just a whim. I love monoprints, and I also love metal. So I wanted to see if I could combine two of my favorite things. Like peanut butter and jelly, this worked better than I had hoped. I took my painted plexiglass and rubbed, pressed and pounded the paint directly onto this large metal plate, creating a one-of-a-kind impression. Fun. Enjoy.


Day 46. Monoprint Bird

15 Feb


This is my first venture into monoprinting. I have always loved the unique look of monoprints and my art blog has given me the motivation to try it out. This is essentially a painting, created through a printing process. How cool is that. This print only came after many, many bird prints that never left the nest. Each time I would pull my paper away from the painted plexiglass it was a moment of discovery. Ahhha or Ugh. This one of a kind print was one of just 2 ahhha birds. Enjoy.
