A friend sent me a link to a wonderful site belonging to an artist from British Columbia. Amie Roman creates beautiful prints using all of the traditional techniques. Her section on printmaking information explains many of the ways prints are made, and is well worth a visit.
My downstairs studio area is being carpeted so I have not been able to work on anything except a small scratchboard piece. Moving my drums was a real chore, but will give me a chance to clean the cymbals.
Ryan Hall from my little town of Big Bear will be running in his second Olympics August 12th. I've watched him run since he was very little and it will be exciting to see the marathon even though it will be in the middle of the night Big Bear time. This is a picture of the banner we have on my office.
The concert was a good one and the proceeds go to a good cause. Big Bear's animal park has been taking care of wildlife that has either been injured or some body's exotic pet, then abandoned since 1956. These are animals that can't be released back into nature. Pretty neat people!
I studied art many, many years ago, then drifted away from it pursuing a living. Ten years ago, through a love for photography, I revisited my art and creative side.
In this new adventure, I discovered printmaking. Linocuts and woodblock work hold so many surprises for me.
