Timely arrival of an incredibly beautiful collection of handmade paper rounds. If you’re wondering how they were created, Marjorie mentioned the blue/green pieces were made with cotton fiber. She then created a collagraph style print with deep embossing. Finally she colored the paper by hand, using an airbrush. Enjoy!IMG_4481

Click on the link LYCEECHICAGO.ORG to see the students at work. Thanks Amanda Love for introducing the project, Andrea Peterson for your papermaking instruction, and all the students, teachers and helpers for participating. Great job and beautiful work!

The week of March 16-20, the Lycée hosted acclaimed papermaker Andrea Peterson to make paper with students grades 1-8 and several 10th grade visual art students. The first grade classes collected old jeans and t-shirts to make paper…

Italic was taught in the San Antonio calligraphy class last month and the assignment was Lloyd Reynolds style weather grams for homework. Monica Flores did this very cool piece—appropriate for Treewhispers! Bravo!

And now for that message from Amy…

Hi, I am a CT-based mixed media artist, performer and survivor myself. I
was truly touched reading about your organization and would love to
become involved in some way. Trees have always been my friends,
healers, source of grounding and strength.

I have a pretty complicated story, but have survived a coma and nearly thirty surgeries by staying true to my passion – creativity and the arts. My artwork is an expression of what I have been through, and also a joyful celebration of life.

Trees are more than a symbol to me – they are a support and way of
life. Much of my art involves trees and my “Singing Tree” – one of my
most popular works was created at one of my darkest times after a
disastrous surgery. I have attached a few pictures of my tree
paintings, but I have hundreds more – a few that you can also find on
my website http://www.amyoes.com

I would love to be a part of your organization by either donating my
art, volunteering, or any way that I can give back to my community and
to nature. I’d love for you to learn more about my journey and my current work at my website (under the “artist” section) at http://www.amyoes.com.

Thank you so much!

Best,

Amy Oestreicher

What a wonderful site. I’d love to share some of my art with you, based on trees.

“Flaming Trees” is done in pastel over watercolor, and is about 34″ x 28″.

The print is done with acrylic paint, using a leaf as the printmaking vehicle. It has two panels. The overall size is 18″ x 14″. The title is “Fall Leaves”.

“River in Fall” is done with Conte pencils. The size is 14″ x 11″. The scene is from a place in New Jersey, and I liked the fall-colored trees, reflected on the water. I thought Conte pencils would give just the right amount of softness to the scene.

“Trees” is done with poured acrylic paint on watercolor paper. The size is 28″ x 36″. It’s one of my favorites. I thinned out each of the three primary colors, using water only, and began pouring, twisting the paper as each color was added.

I’m always photographing trees, also. The last image is from a series of photos I took of my neighbor’s tree. Couldn’t resist that white bark against the deep blue sky, with the few remaining leaves attached to the branches, so I ran inside and grabbed my camera.

Enjoy.

With a recent visit to Calgary, I was given these beautiful paper rounds to include in the Treewhispers project. I always feel so lucky to hear the stories behind the art and wanted to include this note with the paper rounds as reference and inspiration for others.

Hi Pam,
These are the three paper rounds I brought on the weekend. The paper for these was made in a BVCG (Bow Valley Calligraphy Guild) gathering with supplies provided by Annette Wichmann. Annette blended a mountain of old envelopes and other paper bits and we had a lot of fun with instruction from both Annette and Greta Baack.

I coated my hand made paper with clear gesso and then used alcohol inks (copic marker refills) and rubbing alcohol to make a floral or cactus like image. I scraped into it for some texture. I then added black for a  Zentangle stained glass effect with sumi ink and a small nib (a vintage Esterbrook)
