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.

The Copper Bookmarks are ready for Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery

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.

Copper Bookmark will display at the Las Vegas Artist Guild in the December show.

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.

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.
