Just a few sentences and a picture. Most days. Artwork. Humor. Okay, some politics and social commentary. Would you sign up/follow my blog? Today’s monoprint from my Natural History series is “NH: Polar Bear” True or false? We’ll discuss Pliny the Elder later.

Yesterday’s print, “NH Bribery”, was true. HUH!

See more about this series on my website: http://www.hladikvoss.com

Buy in my Etsy shop@ https://www.etsy.com/shop/Printmistress888nhpolar-bears.jpgThe image is 12″x 18″, printed by hand to archival Rives BFK white paper. Frames to 24″x 30″.

Aquatint etching,linocut, trace transfer monotype. Monoprint. Edition 1/1. For sale! Each print background consists of 2, differently colored, inked, aquatinted copper plates printed over each other. This produces the variegated stripes.
Then I employ a variety of printing techniques: linocuts, collograph, etchings, monotyping, chine colle, etc., to create the subject. I design all the fonts by hand.

I don’t find treason laughable. Or bribery. They are among the most serious threats to America. Responsibility and the law must address these foul grievances. Today’s print is several years old. Substitute U.S.A. and Russia for Switzerland? Except, and accept that this is not going to happen soon. Constant vigilance.

Yesterday’s monotype, “Natural History: Bill of Rights”, was true. View more from this series on my website: http://www.hladikvoss.com

You may remember the Bill of Rights?  Fondly??? Today’s monoprint is from my “Natural History” series of over 100 one-of-a-kind artworks.In the wake of the “Fake News” debacle, I am posting prints from this series. Are the statements true or false? ( last post was oddly, true!). Follow the blog to get the true answers. Art is never the wrong answer.

Little did I realize, when I began this series of etchings, that real politics would become part of my artwork. Fake News???? I am posting one of the over 100 monotype etchings: Natural History:Alexander Hamilton, today. True or False? I will answer this in my next blog. Censorship is the antithesis of art. I believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all the hard fought laws that American citizens gave their lives to defend.

Original premise: Pliny the Elder (who died in the Vesuvius explosion ) tried to collect a book of all knowledge-the first encyclopedia – and did he get a lot wrong! But even so, much of it still believed today.

Glowworms!

Posted on: June 15, 2016

Feel like something from the realm of world history today. Must be thinking about my father, Douglas Anderson Hladik who served in the ETO in WWII. ( look up ETO if you don’t know what that means). Was awarded the Bronze Star. More on this later-it’s a great story of personal initiative and the bravado of youth.

So is this true??? Shall I start awarding prizes to the first person to respond correctly? Still building a following for this blog.

Where to begin today? Maybe with our American Colonial past. The Constitution?

My belief is that our Founding Fathers, not being able to look into the future, posited gun ownership as a reasonable right. Settlers shot game for food. They used weapons to protect their families from massacres-not to start them.

Society changes slowly. People’s minds even more slowly. And then we hit a point where we question what changes will make us stronger.

You can’t legislate mental sanity, religious fanaticism or terrorism. We can never be fully safe.

My heart is with Orlando.
