More Gelli prints digitally overpainted, draft.  I never know what it needs next until I see it displayed.

I found a tutorial in an old Somerset Studio magazine that walked me through the Photoshop steps to convert my image of the Colosseum to an antique postcard...now if I can just find it again.

Gelli prints overprinted and painted digitally in four versions.  I like scanning my prints to manipulate in the computer.

Gelli Around

I am addicted to Gelli printing.  Once I start, I can't stop.  Here are some early efforts.  I plan to overprint them or collage on top to develop the circular theme.

A tour of Turkey took us from one ancient site to another.  Leaving Istanbul via the Bosphorus we saw parts of the ancient walls of Constantinople.  Further along the way towards Bursa, visiting a small archaeological site, we saw a small excavated sample of the tile work that gives Iznik its fame.

As a random journalist, one of my favorite forms is collage pages of my photos.  This page recalls a a day strolling the Old Town of Hanoi.

Street Vignettes

Walking along the streets of Hanoi, the wall present wonderful collages of images and textures and the storefronts provide vignettes to isolate as still life.  These are some of my favorite kinds of photos evoking a sense of place through everyday observations
