Something for Judy
My mom got me a Singer sewing machine last week and I had to try it out to make sure it worked. I had asked my mom if she had a sewing machine. She said she still had the one that has been around since I was a little kid. She offered it to me but I said "no" because it was so big, heavy, and was attached to its own table. I would gladly take it apart for assemblages, but I would not have anywhere to put it in my house. I did not expect my mom to get me one. It was a surprise to me because my mom and I have never gotten along that well. I made sure I thanked her when I got it.
Back to the above picts. You can click on it to see more detail. It looks a lot better in real life. Judy was so kind to send me some samples of ones that she did. I took a look at it and tried it myself. Mine are different than hers though. The green's background paper images did not come through. You see them more as value textures. The gold and the quin/nickel azo gold ones came out really well where you can see the printd paper patterns - somewhat.
Time for me to go to bed now. I have testing this week. I need to be awake so I can walk around to monitor my kids. I will be so glad when this week will be over.
BTW, I am working on a huge sheet of rosin paper to create similar backgrounds to the ones above to trade at Art Unraveled. I am still vascillating between going home early or staying until Saturday night. I have two young children and I know that they will miss me. I am having guilt over that even though I want to stay. What shall I do? Need to think on it some more until my mind gives me a definite answer. I do think that my youngest, my daughter, will have a particularly hard time with me gone. What if they don't miss me at all? Then, I should go. Mommy guilt sucks.
