Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

Gel Plate and Stencil play
Do you have a Gel Plate? or two or three? I have at least three different sizes and brought one out to play with today. I forget I have them but they're very useful to make master boards which I then cut up for projects. While pulling my prints I had too much paint on the GP so I grabbed a black canvas that was nearby to mop up the excess. The colors were so vibrant that I placed a Prima stencil over my mess and used some white gesso to transfer a lovely face outline onto the canvas. This is what happened.
A little Jane Davenport paint, a little Dina Wakley paint, a cute butterfly and a Washi tape eye and voila!
Thanks for allowing me to share my art with you and always thanks for stopping by!
Hugs ~ Renee
