The ‘Other’ Printmaking

Mid-August update. I’m old so I’ve been busy painting* and waiting for school to start. For all of us.

Erin has made the switch from The Phoenix School summer camp to Star camp at her new elementary school. Big changes for a big girl! Kyle is all registered for 11th grade, though I think he has already lost his schedule. They both start next week. My semester doesn’t start until the 27th. My big change is no photography class this fall (I’m sure I’ll be sneaking into the darkroom on occassion)! I’m finally taking that Printmaking class I’ve been thinking about for a couple years now. Excited and nervous.

So today I decided to break out the Gelli plate, cut some stencils, and make some monotypes.

These are 8.5 x 11

And these are 5.5 x 8.5

These were printed on a smooth heavy paper. There are a couple of them that I might add some ink to – and a few not posted because they need some additional work.  I’ll probably make a few more tomorrow as I just remembered I have a nice sheet of printmaking paper in the front room! yay!

* I have created a piece for this year’s Artists for the Cure event – I’ll post info and a photo soon! I am really enjoying this month’s True Free Spirit project and am on my second painting. And the Visual Quest class has started so I have a canvas in progress on the easel. So much good stuff going on!
