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!

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.

Here’s the full thesis/premise. I was happily making more and more of these monoprints. It occurred to me that I could make both true and false statements in this series. Let the viewer decide.
And now for the eureka moment. The INTERNET! Pause. Soak that up.
Meant to be a tool that encompasses all knowledge. As did Pliny’s encyclopedia.
Doesn’t. Didn’t. Never will.
But it gives me universal range. I can make a print about anything that strikes my fancy. Which is what I’ve been doing.
