Canadian visit

Hi all,

Returned from overseas Tuesday and still a bit flat from jet-lag but in sorting through the numerous bits of paper and photographs from the trip to Canada I wanted to share a couple of links with you.

I happened upon an exhibition of prints by Canadian artist Sybil Andrews in Victoria and thought others might enjoy her work.

also visited two of the artist run printmaking spaces at the Malaspina Printmakers Studio and Gallery and Dundarave Print Workshop Unfortunately the summer period is pretty quiet in these studios so had to be content to view the great work in their gallery and wander through the studio spaces.

Numerous other galleries visited but not many exhibitions of original hand pulled prints.

Looking forward to getting time in my own studio now that I am refreshed and have heaps of photos of reference material to motivate me.

Once more I attempt to post something here. How hard can it be??? The opening of the artIS 12x12 comp was last Thursday evening. A good turn out. I won an "Honourable Mention" for one of my prints. Classes recommence soon, yay, looking forward to seeing soem of you again. E.

Encaustic Collagraph

Here is the result of my experimentation in the past week. There is something ethereal about this print. Its as though you could fall into it.

Hi there,

Well I have attempted my first woodcut and my first reduction print. I used an image from a drawing I did a year or so ago. I enjoyed the process, although I would do a couple of things differently next time. I would take my blanket out and run the print through with just a piece of matt board on top and I may use different wood for my block - something a bit thicker. Here are some photos I took during the process.
