I just finished the second page of my Red Balloon Series, a story about a young girl and red balloon.  I have been trying to come up with as many scenarios to create prints from.  I know that in the future they will go on a bike ride together, go to school and maybe watch the sunset.  For now, here are the two of them running through a field together.  Looks like fun doesn’t it?

Any suggestions for fun adventures for this young girl and her red balloon friend?

The Red Balloon

So, I have just started a new print series that I am really excited about.  I forgot how much I love printmaking.  In an attempt to fully embrace the whole artist that I am, I have decided to just do whatever I feel like in the studio each day.  If I feel like photographing, I’ll take a walk and do that.  If  I feel like printmaking, than I will start carving and if I want to make a purse, well then I will start sewing.  You get the picture.

These last few weeks have been filled with finally starting and completing some print series work that I have had on the back burner for a while.

One in particular project is called “The Red Balloon.”  I just finished printing the first of I don’t know how many different prints for this series.  As you may have guessed, the print involved a red balloon.  It also involves a young girl and will eventually involve a young boy (a few prints down the road).  Anyway, I wanted to show the first print of this series.

As always, my prints are available for purchase at my etsy store.
