Spent a lot of time printing and not posting, but finally got this print finished to my absolute satisfaction. This was such an enjoyable image to print. I really like printing small editions (25), because it enables me to work with relative quickness and I'm not consuming vast quantities of paper and ink. All of my materials have become almost prohibitively expensive with the growth of digital printing and the diminishing number of artists hand printing their own work. With the approach of my Spring show season I've got to shift gears and get ready to exhibit. I'll be posting a special deal on my Facebook pages for those of you who would like one of the 25 prints in this edition. Thanks for following my progress!
Now, after sixteen colors, the composition has revealed itself. But, in reality I am only one half done. Much more color to come and the most difficult stencils have yet to be cut. I'm certainly having a good time and look forward to another fine day of printing. Hope you'll stay tuned.
Forgive me for posting this image crooked. I'm in such a hurry to begin printing this morning that I just snapped a quick shot without the tripod. As you can see, the image is taking on a whole new persona and will only get more colorful. It gets much more exciting from this point on. Hope you stay tuned.
I have a definite advantage in that I know where I am going. You don't, but you can certainly enjoy the scenery along the way. A very good day of printing, (til 10 PM), yielded seven additional colors. I'll won't be able to print that much today but you'll be surprised how much the image changes next time you visit.
I'm tired of Winter. I'm tired of snow. I'm tired of shoveling. I'm ready for Spring. Do you feel the same? I have designed and am now printing an incredibly colorful image of fruit. Yes, I went to my local Giant Food store and purchased lots and lots of fruit. I spent the better part of the day arranging still lifes in the studio until I had an image that excited me. It's going to be a challenge. There are more colors than I've printed in a long time. Hope you'll log in frequently and see this exciting piece take form. The first four are show here.
