Siouxsie the kitten has been appearing place around the house using magic. Here proof she found a portkey.
1/23 watercolor by John Gregg. Without Sioxsie the kitten paw prints. I had use the stippling brush to remove the prints.
Siouxsie snuck in to the studio. She tried to sneak on to the table to find out where the sound of the brush on paper is coming from. The top right thru the brushes was not expected. There is a reason for no kittens on the table.

“Landscape 1/23” watercolor by John Gregg. It’s been awhile since I moved my watercolors aside and started with copper patina. My Copper Bookmarks with patina are still going great. I’m producing some wonderful colors. I will be going watercolors with no intention of faming the work. Painting for me.
My idea about how to show off what I can do with copper patina will be on diplayed at Las Vegas Artist Gallery next week. Copper is quite soft metal to work with and the patina can be from a deep purple, bark blue to a turquois. The piece that goes in to the book is made from hammer copper, this helps harden it so it’s harder to bend. The feather has been pressed and hammered in to shape but still can be bent. My artist side of me likes a feather to act like a feather, light and delicite. So please treat the feather as a feather made out copper by a artist. The entire piece has been laquered to seal the color.
Thank you Terry Pratchett I used a portion of your book Wee Free Men.
You can find my copper bookmarks at Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery in the Galleria mall in Las Vegas NV. They will be there this Christmas
Copper Bookmark Feather with Patina The bookmarks is about 4″. I made part that goes in the book by hammering copper and will stand up being in books. The feather is from thinner copper. If you are where the feather can crushed put the whole bookmark inside the book. A laquer finnsh has been aplyed to the bookmark to seal the copper patina.
Copper Bookmark Feather with Patina. I’ve changed the patina to get some light Tuquoise with deep blue. These Bookmarks give me a small canvas to play with.
I havn’t worked in copper since I was doing altenitive firing on my pottery. I would embelish my pottery with copper, stones and wood. I havn’t posted while I set my watercolors aside and let art happen. I have copper, I was a electrician for 20 years. I pulled out a piece of wire and expermented. If something did not come out. I would take the things that did work and push them. This helps me to keep thing simple at first. Things come along with practice, copper is very forgiving.
I don’t follow some of the social meda I post on please find me at JohnGregg.com or John@johngregg
