i impulsively and obsessively made this giant collage yesterday. i am on the fence about how i feel about it. it is kind of intense and i feel like it might be stronger with more of a single focal point. its pretty overwhelming. especially since it is 30 x 22 inches or so. its pretty big for a collage made entirely out of colour photocopies. the colour copies also aren't the very best -their colours aren't very balenced and they vary from one to the next, so i guess i would like to try this again using nicer prints and have a visual focal point - but im loving the layering of the clouds and messing with the horizon of the landscape. title suggestions?
These are some lino prints that are pulled from some carvings I did at Georgian Bay Islands National Park. I printed then using black glass enamel onto a special waterslide paper. Then when they were dry and clear coated I fastened them on my glass and they are getting fired on permanent

When we were in Italy I learned from Matt's Aunt Terresina how to make potato gnocchi. She spoke no English and I spoke no Italian but somehow we sorted it out. Back at home, this is my first attempt at unsupervised gnocchi, which was so heavenly I thought I would pass out. I did not pass out but it was so close. Pure scrumptiousness, and it only took me two hours to make!
I would like to make a poster inspired by this photo I took and the starry night above the stage and submit it for next years image. Summerfolk posters are often kind of lame and would like to see if I can change that. What did you guys do this weekend?

i made this yesterday and something about it really didnt feel right. in a dream a german sheppard came to me and told me it would be fine. i included him in the piece hoping that it would make it better. the rest is the progression from today
