New Crop of Small Prints

In preparing for my Barns Art Market show tomorrow I printed up a batch of 6" x6" one of a kind prints and these three are from that batch.

I had actually printed the watery backgrounds 2 or 3 years ago.  At that point, I think I had run out of ideas so I put the partially completed sheets away.  Of course, I would keep on coming across them in the studio and I would shuffle through them and wonder what the heck I ever thought I was going to do with them.

Now that they are finished it seems obvious what I should have done with them ...  hindsight is everything they say it is.

Barns Art Market

This Saturday is fast approaching ............... and I am still waiting for my latest prints to finish drying.  The humidity has been slowly picking up and the drying times is getting really extended.  These prints are all signed and stamped, but not dry.  Waiting .... waiting .... waiting......

Carstens Ankara Vase

When I took my relief printing course, which got me started in all of this, we did a lot of collographs.  I've always enjoyed the textures and variations that can be achieved with this technique.  As I do not have a press I print these as relief blocks, not intaglio.

This print is my interpretation of a Carstens Ankara West German pottery art vase with a raised geometric pattern. 

Available for sale here.
