plaster landscapes

I love plaster. And especially plaster bandage. I haven't been working with it for awhile but lynne hoppe's recent foray into plaster bandage on muslin inspired me to muck about with something similar...plaster bandage on muslin, rubbed with chalk pastels. These close-ups are a lot more interesting than the finished pieces. They remind me of miniature plaster landscapes.

spring slips in

purple emergence
humbly unfurling to warmth
shy declaration
