Good morning!!! Thanks everyone for coming out last night for final friday.
Today, im printing at the log cabin print shop from noon-5pm.
While doing my morning porchsitting/birdwatching, i started this design for a new greeting card.
I was born in Utah, the beehive state. During my formative years as a young artist in kentucky, Luciano Moral , and the original beehive tavern in augusta were a big support and influence of my work.I have a few friends who are beekeepers, and i am learning about how important our pollinators are. This tuesday, there will be a talk about pollinators at the caza sikes gallery…part of Ursula Roma s wonderful mind gardens art exhibit.
Keep watching this post for updates on the print. Or stop by. Ill be printing from noon-5pm.
I dont have a plan for a particular print, but the studio is open to the public, you are welcome to stop by and see what i end up making…or come to make something yourself. Ill be here until at least 5pm.
I have finally finished carving the 9”x24” panoramic woodcut of the scene. My plan for today is to proof it, and then print an edition on paper.
just printed the rest proof. I am over the moon happy with how it looks!!! maybe a few more bricks around the horse?
carved some more bricks–to bring out the horse… let’s put it through the press and see how it looks!
I’m happy… now time to print on the “good” paper
