The Beets series of monotypes came after a visit to a Chihuly exhibit. Dale Chihuly, the famous glass artist, also paints energetic art filled with color and action. These paintings were inspired by his work although my work is more representational. The "Yellow Beets" diptych was created by laying two plates next to each other and painting them as one plate. Each was then printed individually and mounted later together as one piece. The other prints are titled "Red Beets" and "Blue Beets" respectively. I also designed and sewed a small wall hanging using the design in the "Yellow Beets" diptych.
