I just started a printmaking collaboration with Radha, one of my neighbors at the Pendleton Art Center. She is one of my favorite printmakers, using many traditional patterns from her home in India. Visit her website http://radartist.com to see for yourself.
These monotypes are the beginning of our collaboration.
I have used elements from my prints for the monotype…when they dry, Radha will print on top of them, we will pass the artwork back and forth until the artwork is complete.
Stay tuned, I’ll share more prints as the project develops
I am settling into my new space at the Pendleton Art Center. I have been working in beautiful blues. One project is a block print, titled “Serenade In Blue”.
I am limiting the print to 12, so holler at me if you want one. They will make a great gift for any music lover.
Keeping with the musician in blue theme, i also created this awesome monotype. Of course, there is only one monotype, but I love this composition, and might use it as inspiration for the next block print.
I worked in monotype, and brought enough supplies to share. Here’s the artwork before going through the press.
Sue Gorman created a beautiful peacock in monotype. Judith Foster painting.
Marilyn Lustik working in pastels.
Jennifer Gleason working in monotype.
Linda Kratzer, painting with a palette knife.
Guild director, Claudia Moose, setting up the still life.
My finished print. I was interested in using strong line and black space. I’m very happy with it, and would like to do a series in this style.
