Being here (in early spring)

Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this ...
Welcome to Spark and the Thyroid Community Team.

I get asked a lot about my art... the images you see here that are non-photos.

The medium is aquatint/etching.

Its a type of printing process, where an image is created on a sheet of copper, using corrosive salts, grounds, burnishing, sanding and scraping. After the image has been refined, its inked and wiped, pulled thru a 1.5 ton hand press with a dampened sheet of paper and felt blankets. During this final process the ink is transferred to the paper.

Its extremely time consuming and challenging as the process is full of surprises that you don't always have the ability to anticipate or control. Many of these surprises are not um... desirable. LOL

Rather like thyroid disease.

Between the Hashi's and Aquatints I should be a Zen Master by now.
Unfortunately, I am not.

Its nice to have a goal... although I can't quite decide if the goal has me.
Namaste

Thank you for the SP goodie. It will take luck and prayer and Mother Nature to behave for a good garden. It's worth a try, tho. At least I know where the veggies are coming from, etc.

Thanks so much for the goodie:)

I've been feeling great since my surgery. I'm up to walking 4 miles now with some tough climbing hills....I have to keep telling myself I can do it, I can do it, til I get to the top and then I do the Sylvester Stallone dance haha

Hoping all is well with you:) Hugs, Toni emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank for the kind words and the lovely Goodie Mzz.
We had a storm on Thursday/Friday which was described as
one in a century. I got water 2 inches deep in my garage because
my landlord has not bothered to fix the seal on my garage door.
Water also came through the front door and on to my persian carpet.
I was so angry that I phoned him at 9pm to come and look at the mess.
He came and was 'surprised'. Told him he has been putting it off for 2 years and he has to come and fix all this.
I went out on a catamaran yesterday as the weather was amazing. It was a 4 hour cruise around the coastline to a little island across from us.
I will post a blog and put some photos of the day.
I am slowly getting things together for a garage sale as I don't want to leave too many things behind when I go to Europe in July.
I am having trouble with my left knee and will go to get it checked.
Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying lovely Spring weather.
Autumn here, almost winter in fact and today was a glorious 27 Celsius.
Loving this weather.
Hugs and best wishes
