I found this little print tucked away this past summer and forgotten... until today! I finished it and made a nice series on Unryu paper. I want to try this out with my new red water-based graphic chemical ink. For today, though, I just used the black ink that I was working with for another print. Oh, and I need to add my chop mark. As usual, I'm just excited and wanted to share it right away. I think I was reading about Van Gough's drawings when I started this piece and that shows through in the finished product.
New print! 4"x4" sqr. Black water-based Graphic Chemical ink on natural kitakata heightened with water-color from reverse side. The photo reference was taken at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. This print is about noticing the details and finding beauty in all things. Ever see the flash off the back of a bottlefly? it is the most brilliant blue-green hue.
I've been commissioned to paint a 60" wide by 44.5" tall canvas for a church in the traditional style of Michaelangelo. Above shows the three thumbnails that I'm sending them to choose from.
Finally! The studio is clean and i can start working there again. I've been lazy after the summer art show season and had just piled everything in the center of the room only to pick it up and dash off to the next show. During that time, I brought supplies home as they were needed and worked there. Now everything is back in order and I can start printing the five new blocks I carved at home.
