Happy Holidays

Wow, the holidays are here and a new year is coming up hard and fast. Sandra and I have been busy with our second book on surfaces which is a perfect compliment to Image Transfer Workshop.

On the left, Juicy Too, is a combination of water slide transfers, gold leaf, collage and lots of glazing. A friend of mine was asked by her gallery to paint some red paintings and I thought it was a great idea so I challenged myself to do one and I had a great time. It is in a show of work by Canyon Road artists being held at The Factory in Albuquerque that starts Thanksgiving weekend.

Misty Dawn

I now have an etching press in my studio and I am having so much fun it should be illegal. This is a collagraph using oil etching ink. I have also collaged an image on organza, the mist, and some gold leaf. A collagraph is like creating a textured collage, then you ink it and print it. I make several different plates and layer my colors and textures to create depth.
