Spirals and Leaves

Spirals and leaves. Monotypes with stencils. I went a little crazy last week -- I think I cranked out about 40 of these little things. They're like potato chips -- you can't do just one. I finally had to quit when I ran out of paper -- twice. ;-> I could do these all day. They push my o/c button.

I think the 3rd one down is actually the first print. From there all permutations progressed (in no particular order). My inks were mixed with white, so I wasn't getting any transparent overlays. That's for next time. I like the light colors I was getting (tho in the case of the 1st one, you can barely see the lavendar spiral).

I may use the bulk of them for a print exchange, as they surely constitute an edition, if a varied one. 8-]

These are gorgeous, Ellen. I love the blues and purples with that green...
