Stage 2 and 26 prints have been cut and printed in light green. Now the plate will be cut again. The process is long and I have been making the edition over the last week or so. Today I accidentally nearly sliced my finger off using the Stanley knife. The damage was limited as the paper was safe. As for my finger, that is wrapped up and I may need to not print for a week or so.
It has been a while since i have done a Silk Cut Lino. This particular lino is going to be a reduction print. I am going to post each week the outcome of my process. Using new Caligo inks in exciting colors. Stay tuned!
Oil painting for the 'Little Archies' competition at Oak Hill Gallery. Portrait of my son JET. Loved painting with oils again, had fun with this one. It is all finished now. Ready for 2013 entry next week. Wish me luck.
Finally, after many art shows I have won first prize. Best in Show at the 2013 Mornington Peninsula Art Show. The show is held at the Rosebud College on the Mornington Peninsula. My mixed media painting of Red Bluff Mornington is the painting that won. The MPAS is held over Easter every year. Here are some pictures of the show and painting.
This is a woodcut print. Done with the reduction process on a press. I have to admit that unless you have your own private space, reduction work can be a challenge. This one came out the best i think. I recently gave this to a friend who loved it.
