SANTO PRESS - COLOR 1
It is such a luxury to have your reduction relief printed for you. Brent Bond at Santo Press is a joy to work with. I love the Mesa Arts Center - it's where I learned I was a printmaker! - and I'm grateful for their facilities and galleries. So supporting their annual fundraising effort is important to me. Each year artists donate prints to be included in the MAC calendar. A buyer can get 12 original fine art prints for $200. Such a deal! But carving out the time (a little printmaker pun) to print 50 2 color reductions, just isn't available to me right now. So with much gratitude, Brent printed the first color of my print yesterday. This photo is a test proof, not the final color but close.
PHOENIX MAGAZINE BLOGPOST
Deborah Lewis freelanced a blogpost for Phoenix Magazine about family art collecting. It is a wonderful idea and I encourage one and all to start with their kids today. Most artists welcome inquiries about their art, process and prices from those who are sincere in their interest. Artists I know like to give small prints as baby presents so the baby owns original art from the get go. Birthdays are perfect opportunity to grow a collection. Let me know if you have any questions about my work. My email is listed on my Facebook badge on the right column of this blog. Or make a comment with your contact info and I will reach out to you.
