Part of the print album 'MiscPrints'

Fine Art Friday - this piece literally came together on a Friday. Frustrated and stuck on another series of pieces I needed to loosen up and play with the ink blobs and inked pieces around me, making use of the beautiful colors on various inked acrylic plates in the studio.
And there are always scraps of printmaking paper idling somewhere, waiting to become the stage for a little piece on the side.
So the brayer skated across marbled blobs of blue and yellow, coming together in the most wonderful green, just the thing to hold the attention inside the donut shaped prints and ghost prints in tangerine and magenta. Add in some graphite and pencil drawing to throw the whole thing into focus and pretty soon you are looking for just that one piece off center.
And in went a creature like figure, vaguely reminiscent of a bird. I seem to have a liking for birds.
But he slipped during the printing process- escaped from the donut shape, out of bounds. Showing the other one where to go.
