MiT, 2nd senior, day 6

We're starting to move along really quickly now...I'm getting better at using the copier at RSM to get a good quality copy for the gocco; and my Rock Star Senior is getting better at selecting an image to print, and also at printing them. She's getting pretty good at deciding what pressure she should be printing at, depending on the image and such. We worked on 3 prints today, 2 of them are finished (just 1 screen each, one is of a poem she wrote, and another from a watercolor she did), and the 3rd we'll complete the next time.

My original plan was to put prints in the room divider screen, but I had a brilliant idea the other day—I should use the cleaned gocco screens for the screens! I've always thought they were beautiful to look at, when they're stained from the inks but cleaned up. And with the room divider working with light, the used screens would be great. In fact, I'm thinking I should do that with all those old screens I have that I'll never use again.

See this entry for my previous day with my Rock Star Senior.

I also figured out what was bothering me (at least one of the things bothering me) about the LO piece—the window frame on the left looks too much like a trellis. I'm not sure there's anything I can do to fix that at this point. I guess I'll sleep on it.

The Random Movie tonight was Caramel, a Lebanese sweet nothing...not much happens, but full of heart. Super enjoyable, but more music please!

Ooooh, a gasp inducing idea, it must be good!
