My mothers painting and my fathers Juniper wood work

Today I thank Rain for the theme Gates and Fences. I finally know what to do with my parents artwork.
My mother loved to paint in oil and my father loved woodwork. Especially in Juniper wood.
Today I combined the Autumn forest and the Juniper pieces of wood.
I wrote their names on the base of the gate.
So far the wood is only placed upon the canvas. Now I have to figure out how to attach them permanently.
I have been fooling around with Geli printing a bit this week. As I don´t have a geli plate I used a transparent, plastic cutting board.
I photographed each stages on the work. First shot is the background painted on the board. Then let it dry. Next I painted a flower on top of it. And the blue stripes.
Image 4 shows the result of having plastic folie on top of the wet color. And ripping it off.
For image 5 I had to spray water on the board as the basic layer were dry. And they need to be wet.
I put a sheet of watercolor paper on top of the wet color. Pressed it down to capture the wet color. And lifted it slowly.

If you wonder why the final image is turned the other way it is because when you paint on the geli board, you paint the negative and turn it to positive in the last stage.
Had some fun with coffee filter too. Might be the same flower as above!
Take care everyone. It is chilly today, spring is slow, and I have a heater blowing some warmth.
