P4 Art Show

This is the invitation for a show I'm having with three other artists in July in Portsmouth, Virginia. There's a painter, photographer, potter and printmaker. Hence the name P4! I have 21 etchings for the show and a small gallery to myself. I am tired from all of the work but it is done and I'm looking forward to the opening!!

Sylvester's Dream

I saw this linocut that I did a few years ago in my photo file and wondered how it would look here. I enjoy looking at it because it reminds me of Sylvester, a great cat that I had. So I think I'll just keep it here for awhile so I can enjoy looking at it and remembering him!
I can imagine making many linocuts of cats. What fun that would be!

What to do??

I have been spending too much time the last few days just looking at this beautiful copper plate and trying to find an idea for it! It is the last one for my upcoming show and I am struggling for an idea. It is a big one for me - 9"x 12"! Anyway, I will keep at it until something ...well..happens! They say walking can sometimes cure the blocked mind. That sounds too easy but it's worth a try!

Twilight Gathering

Earlier in the blog I showed you the etched plate for this print but not the print because it wasn't finished. Now that it's finished, here's the end result! I used a chine colle paper in the background which is hard to see here but I think it adds a nice soft look to the etching.
