Subject: Another lurker....
Another lurker coming out of the closet! I have been doing Gum
Bichromate for two years and Gumoil for one year this month. I came to the
alternative processes from painting...oil and watercolor. Photography was a
tool for collecting reference pics for my painting.
I am entirely self taught. I have never taken a workshop or even known
somebody working in the alt processes. It is from the people here that I
learned how to do what it is that I do....Katharine T, Christina, Sam Wang and
Keith G were my earliest online sources for how to begin making gum prints,
and they continue to be inspiration and sources for information. Yet I still
fail, learn, smile and jump up and down and scratch my head! Thank you for all
that you share.
