My artistic process has undergone some major shifts recently. I’ve documented many of these breakthroughs here in this blog: working larger, stepping back from direct observation to allow my inner vision a larger role. It has been a big year.
As I continue to refine my vision and expression, I’ve been making color prints. This is another new direction for me, and It involves a lot of experimenting. But even with lots of experience and confidence, the process of developing a print is like driving on a road with blind curves. I am very excited about where it is going.
So after a long, somewhat muted period, Printmaking Me is discovering an amplified voice. Painting Me is happy to have the volume turned up.
And actually, now it looks like this. I printed the band of rocks a second time, with a layer of black.
About twenty-five color woodcuts and monoprints will be featured in my upcoming exhibit “North of Here” at 22 Gallery in Philadelphia. Stay tuned for more info, I’m already shifting gears, cleaning up the studio and getting ready to bring work to the framers.
