I have two friends who, within the last couple of months, have acquired new homes in town. I'd hoped to get both house-warming gifts ready before the one couple left for their winter home in the US, but couldn't manage it. This one, however, is a little more timely and was delivered today.
I think it's particularly appropriate that the coins in the cup were donated to my mixed media cause by the gentleman side of this couple, and they're getting a small percentage of the world-ranging treasure back in this form.
I'm loving the tactility of this piece so much that I have a yen (pun intended) to do it all over again.
Luckily, with a stash of coins and a surplus of metallic alcohol inks, that is actually possible.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether it will materialize or not!
And just a reminder, I do have a Gelli printing workshop this next weekend here in Creston. Are you coming to play?
