“During this period I have been “playing” and learning new techniques, trying out new products (for me). I used a Gel Press for the first time and collaged a piece from that experiment onto a watercolor painting of fruit. I also collaged a balancing print of a cup. I enjoy the mixed media result!” – Rita Sklar
