Just the Facts: (of the Natural History Monoprint Series)
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, 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.

Well, I’m still standing, sort of, today. How well do you have to be to work?

This monoprint was sold from a juried show a few years ago. What am I going to share today? I think Pliny the Elder. He died on the beach after Pompeii. He also compiled the first encyclopedia. With terribly wrong information. Historia Naturalis. That’s your clue for the day.

Comprising 2 copper aquatint etching plates-the striped background. And a plethora of other printing techniques. Etchings! Chine Collé! Lino! Trace transfer monotyping of hand designed fonts!

Sorry about the multiple postings of yesterday’s blog. Should I alternate sites? I have FB, FB art page, Linkedin. Willing to listen to suggestions. Want to get seen and not annoy. And increase followers.

Have a good day. Don’t eat herring. And why does my first draft of the blog have so much space between the image and text?  That’s why there is a “a” designation again today…
