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

I understand mzzchief about wanting to be on the computer less! Its hard to find balance between spark and living my life too. I understand that being on too many teams just leaves one scattered.

I hope your taxes get resolved soon! Take care and enjoy your weekend!

Whats up mzzchief? I hope you are getting into or causing a bit of fun trouble!

I love coming to your page and just looking at your art work. There is so much feeling in it. It is magical.

By the way, since your goal is to find balance I thought you might want to look at the team balance and moderation. A new member on our remedies team started it and I know her from years back, she was one of my first sparkfriends. She is an amazing writer with good ideas and has lots to offer.

Hope your week is awesome!
