I cruised through Facebook yesterday and found a link from Helen Wilson, a wonderful California artist, to a blogpost about the new head of the NEA. I was so impressed by the article that I have to share it with other artists: http://www.arts.gov/artworks/
It has made me feel hopeful and encouraged so it feels right to begin this blog with this post.
I am starting two new reduction linocuts and plan to document my process. This is the exciting part, after the idea is born and worked and reworked, drawn and redrawn...I am ready to cut the linoleum and print the first color. The first piece will have 6 colors and will be 10 x 8 inches.
The second piece is for a print exchange "Naughty, Taboo, Just Plain Wrong" which will have 5 colors in the reduction at 7.5 x 14 inches with a photopolymer etching collaged for an overall 11 x 14 print.
I am new to blogging so I welcome your feedback.
