Its printmaking day at the log cabin print shop. Im ready to start a new 16×20 woodcut. Heres my sketch (only about 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches in size) ive transferred the sketch to tracing paper and drew a rough grid so i can flip the image and transfer to the wood block. No photos or computers…all analog. Stay tuned for progress reports
Ken is a self-taught artist from rural Kentucky, whose work includes painting, printmaking, and pottery. He considers himself to be a 'lifetime learner' and he uses art as the vehicle to explore and learn more about the world around him. Much of his work reflect his optimistic views on rural folk culture, river life and simple pleasures.
You can visit Ken every Final Friday of the month at studio 400 at the Pendleton Art Center in downtown Cincinnati. He can also be found picnicking near his home in the Historic Village of Old Washington, KY.
