Let’s start over. When I began this blog I was full of ideas of what I wanted it to do. (Look at prior blogs for reasons for my absence.)
That hasn’t changed much. I wanted to share my artwork. Primarily, my ongoing monoprint etching series, “Natural History”. There are over 100 prints in the series, and I thought that was plenty of fodder! With some entertainment value.
Along the way, I will be delighted to answer questions about technique and subject matter, philosophy, history, recipes, and my continuingly baffling personal life.
Today’s print is titled: “Natural History: Bill of Rights”
With the Memorial Day weekend about to begin, le us think about those who have served and sacrificed for this country. Eternal Vigilance. Eternal Gratitude.
Just the Facts:
Image size=12″x 18″. Framed 24″x 30. Printed on Rives BFK white archival paper. Edition 1/1. To begin, each print background consists of 2, different 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.
More later about the inspiration for this series.
