I have been experimenting with making a kind of monoprint, where I paint one layer on a canvas, then smush it onto another. I put the paint on thickly, but some of it dries before I make the transfer. So I paint more on the printed one, then smush them together again. I did many layers on this one, and though it didn’t turn out as textured as I wanted, I think the two of them have a nice winter forest look. I made them look different, and put a bird on each one.
They’re distinct enough alone, but they also look good hung together.
I’m going to play around with different papers and supports for this technique. It’s a fun way to find new ways paint can be used.

Hi Joy, I like these paintings. For me, they capture the density of a thick evergreen forest with snow thickly falling, and snow a foot high on the ground. So beautiful, so silent, except for the occasional whump of a clump of snow falling off a tree. It brings back glorious times cross country skiing in Montana. Warmly, Susan
Thank you, Susan. I haven’t gotten to spend much time in evergreen forests, but I see them in nature documentaries and photographs. They seem to be as you described them. Glad you liked these paintings. Hope all is well with you.
