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.

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.

Pliny was an historian in Ancient Rome, around the time of the Pompeii disaster. ( will discuss that later!).
His encyclopedia was created from fact, best guesses, rumor, unverified accounts and utter garbage. All taken at face value as the truth. Feel you are getting closer to my premise?
I decided that I would do the same, with a conscious twist.
More on that tomorrow. Will we find our heroine tied to the train tracks? Will she finally tell you the total concept? Yes, I promise!

NH:BillofRightsWell. Considering all the laws and rights we enjoy in America. And, pre-occupied with the the issue of medical insurance. Which is off the mark for this print. Don’t care. I was uninsurable for most of my adult life, due to a chronic health problem that started when I was a child.. I have experienced decades of no coverage, and subsequent near death outcomes. I have had government subsidized health care. Mixed help and results. I have had good insurance when I married, very late in life-with high costs. Today, I discovered that my very expensive insurance will not cover an essential medication. Cost to me? Over $1000.00 out of pocket a month. So, praying to get an answer. Don’t qualify for disability-even though I have an automatically qualifying condition. Too ill as an adult to have worked enough to qualify. Not destitute enough to qualify as indigent. Move to Sweden? Wales? Ireland?

Have a few pieces of artwork made when un-insurable. “Pre-Existing Condition”. “Buy This and the Artist Dies”- When on government insurance, couldn’t make any income.  “X-Ray”, and the like. This print features the 2 aquatint striped plate background. Lino gun and flag, And a very fetching etching plate-the ekg flatline. PLUS! hand drawn and designed fonts-a trace transfer technique.

Glad for those that the new health care helps.  I’ve survived over 45 years of this. What ya got for me today, Mr.President?

NH:Artificial InseminationHistory? Factual? Incendiary?  This is an earlier print-uses my favorite fetus linocut. Never knew how useful this plate was going to be. Many of these monoprints deal with feminist issues. Not a big surprise.

See you tomorrow.
