Before I go curl on my studio cot and pass out for a blessed couple of hours I wanted to share what will be coming

Its pretty bare at the moment and I'm not satisfied with the furniture arrangement, but its home!

Old School

Check out this blast from the past that I never photographed until now

This was a color study for my color theory class. We were given three images to choose from. This is a background from Disney's Snow White. I even painted birds on acetate but they sucked so I threw them away after the project was done. Its all done in water color on a 22x30  300lb sheet ripped to size. I'm still really proud of it. There aren't a lot of class projects that I've done over the years that I can say that about this long after the fact.

A New Quarter, Same Old Beatdown

On man. SO MUCH PRINTMAKING. My hands will never not be black again. Week two and I've already logged way too many hours.

Renaissance style insanity. Saint Svetlana, patron of the black hand printmakers

My first lino from my reinventing the landscape, hand pressed, itty bitty thing.

The original sketch.

The original view. I want to do a larger one with more detail and explore the texture more thoroughly.

Sketch for my first etching

Here is the first proof, both hard and soft ground used.
