 Today was printmaking day. I chose the Japanese enso symbol for these two monoprints. Enso means circle, a symbol of enlightenment, strength, elegance and the universe. Each print is a discovery; while the design is planned, you really don't know what the result will be until you pull the paper and turn it over.

  1. I like them both. It's the same for me with the scrim stitching, each time I pull it out of the hoop after working on it I'm amazed how it changes
