With the rain pouring down care of Cyclone Oswald, the collagraph I am working on seems quite appropriate. (A collagraph is where textural materials like string, sand, card and paper are glued to a plate of heavy card and then printed through the press. Sort of similar to how a rubbing is done.) I really like the textural feel of the plate with this print medium and look for quirky bits and pieces to use as textures and content. Several months ago I found a completely flattened frog and adhered it to a board, then several weeks later I was handed another flattened frog which I also added to the board. When I had almost finished the collagraph along came a third frog that was added to the image.
I am now in the process of printing, but as yet I am not happy with the results.
Enjoying the rain and the croaking frogs,
