Leaf Mandala

Leaf Mandala–the 5-color reduction print was finally completed a couple of weeks ago at Santo Press. Master printer Brent Bond did a truly phenomenal job on this print and though it took longer than I anticipated, it was worth waiting for. Leaf Mandala is comprised of a laser-engraved key block (the black lines) with 2 hand-cut linoleum blocks for the 4 colors printed in reduction. The resulting image appears to be 6 colors because of overlapping color areas. It is exactly as I envisioned it would be, so I couldn’t be happier.

In case you are interested, here is what the colors looked like prior to printing the key block. This is a working registration sample, and was not one of the finished prints.

The 1967/Swirl print is complete. It is a “companion” to my larger 1967 Swirl painting from the Sixties Paintings series.

New Print! Feather Flower–Red

This is the first in a series of three prints. It is a one-color relief print completed this week by Brent Bond of Santo Press. Another laser-cut linoleum block, Feather Flower–Red was hand-inked and printed in an edition of 10. The second iteration in the series is being printed now and should be ready to be signed in a couple of days. It is a 2-color print in vivid colors of cobalt blue and chartreuse. The third edition will be a 3-color reduction print. Flower Feather–Red is the 64th edition Brent and I have completed in just 2 years–setting a world record, I think. We are on fire!

Feather Flower–Red is available for $400 (unframed).

2017 Governor’s Arts Awards

I am extremely honored and thrilled to announce that my work Grand Variations I was selected (along with 8 other artists) to be given as an award to one of the recipients of the 2017 Governor’s Arts Awards by Arizona Citizens for the Arts. The big event is May 4 at the Phoenician Ballroom. I have no idea who will be given my print as their award. That information is top secret–no one knows until the awards are handed out at the event. I do know it will go to a very good home–every single person or organization up for the 2017 Governor’s Arts Awards is truly amazing in their commitment to and love of art.

Grand Variations I (see above) was printed by Brent Bond of Santo Press. It was created by layering a laser-etched linoleum block print over an digital inkjet print of one of my manipulated photographs. Grand Variations I was printed in an edition of 10; image size 16″ x 16″ on 23″ x 22″ paper; (there are also Grand Variations II, III and IV).  Similar prints (Universal Variations) were created using the same technique in a variable edition of 14. They are smaller in size of 10″ x 10″ on 14.5″ x 13″ paper and feature an array of colors with different background layers. Contact me for pricing if you are interested in adding one to your collection.
