Here I am in Prescott

Here I am in Prescott, Arizona for the Printmaker’s Show at the Mountain Artist’s Guild and Gallery. These are pieces from my Moroccoan series. They are multiple images (all taken by me of course!) and combined onto a photopolymer etching plate, hand inked and hand printed on an etching press. I am doing an edition of 20 original prints of each of these. Since each is an original, they will vary slightly. So far I have 8 different images. And yes they are for sale, email me for info. Each print is approximately 9×12.

It was great to meet the other printmakers, see their work and talk shop. We had a wonderful turnout, and then after that I went to Sedona to see my sisters and some friends, all in all it was a great trip.

Opening at Sylvia White’s Gallery, in Ventura. Quite a lot of people braved the rain for the opening, it was a great turnout and a beautiful show. It will be up for the rest of the month, do stop by to take a look at the eclectic representation of book art. It was nice to see so many friends.

I have two pieces represented, this is one of them titled “Family Secrets” a bit different from the work I have been doing, it’s a monotype with chine colle, inked up an acrylic plate and added elements at the time of handprinting, and yes it’s larger than I have been doing. I’m pushing myself. The photograph in the piece is one of my grandmother from the first grade., I’m so glad she gave me the photo of her first grade class.book show 2014

The show will be up for the rest of February, do stop by, it’s a great show and quite varied as well.

I was thrilled to be able to enter the  Collaborations Show through the Ventura County Arts Council. My daughter Mika Harmony and I collaborated on two pieces, she did the photos and I created etching plates, after of course manipulating some stuffs in photoshop!  It was great collaborating with her, she’s so talented, besides, we had a good time!
