Playing With My Toys....

Playing with my toys....they are like toys, a can carry them around with you, lean them up on your coffee cup, lean them against the TV while you watch, or lean them on a shelf, or shuffle them up like cards.....or you can give one to someone you like...but then you can't look at it anymore...
Each card image is an original piece of art signed H. Stooshinoff.

Some New Greeting Cards

Here are a few new greeting cards, 5 x 7 inches, blank on the inside, with some original images on the front. I love printing on old book papers....the rag content in the paper is high, and it takes the printers' ink and watercolour so nicely. One image is also a little acrylic collage. Everything looks so beautiful when you put it in a plastic sleeve! These 4 are in my Etsy store now.
Happy New Year Everyone!

Fallow, Late August

I just now finished my 2nd one in this series. These are just a touch bigger...and a bit different. I'm quite glad that the work changes subtly over time, with little plan from me.....little hunches are enough to move things forward. 11 x 14 inches, acrylic and pencil on gessoed Whatman paper.

White Flock, Near Rice Lake.

Pencil and acrylic on gessoed Whatman paper, 6.75 x 9.75 inches. I think the aim was to park on top of the high hill and just sit there and look for a half hour.

My apologies to anyone who has been looking for new work here in the last months....I have been posting new work and comments almost daily to Facebook. Please find me there if you wish to see the daily pieces. I will come back to this space after a period of time....but Facebook seems easier at the moment.

Wendy's Hill, January 1

click here to view or purchase new Stooshinoff works.

...looking toward Wendy's Hill, the highest feature near me....late afternoon of the first day of the new year! The view is a bit elusive and takes some careful positioning....a few steps in either direction and the hill disappears. Acrylic on archival paper, 9.5 x 7.5 inches.
