Montoypes: Domestic Scenes with Ghosts

These monotypes are small, about 5 x 4 inches, and hand-colored with Prismacolor and collaged printed papers.  The images derive from stories in my own life and the lives of my family and friends.  Each is a challenge to both memory and invention, and each is an intimate amusement.  The attending angels and my dog, Rufus, serve as narrator-witnesses to recalled events.  This series, begun in 2017, is still under construction. –mls 2019

Titles/ subjects in order of the slides:  “Artists and Model”, “Working Naked”, “Put Yr Shirt On”, “Sweet Dream”, “Listening at the Seal Hole”, “Shopping Day”, “Power Failure”, “Mermaid”, “Horse Story” and “Diving Lesson”.
