i have been kind of busy the past few weeks and haven’t had a chance to update my blog. since my last post i have added about 60 or 80 images to my selling page on Imagekind.com ( my gallery is jnanian.imagekind.com ) . i’ve been selling work there for a few months now, and i am donating 100% of the proceeds to disaster relief efforts in japan. i was spending too much time infront of my computer screen … one thing lead to another and i have been seeing a chiropractor for a few weeks. she has fixed me up good, so you don’t need to worry.
while i have been “recovering” i have been spending a lot of time making sun prints. i have been using bottled liquid emulsion, as well as cyanotype materials. the liquid emulsion prints have been like “lumin prints” but i don’t fix them, and i don’t leave them in the sun for hours, maybe an hour tops … the cyanotypes take about 15-20mins … i wash them blue, and soon after i bleach them back. they sometimes have a yellowish hue, sometimes a blueish and a greenish hue. THEN … i work on these images with crayons, and water color paints.
