I'm not exactly a purist myself – any real printmaker worth her salt would actually make an edition of prints that were identical, unlike my Songbird prints above, but I'm a painter who is used to making everything different. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it. I love the variations I can explore in a run of prints – above, in ink colors, in variations in the second print run, and in papers.
It is also possible to make an edition of prints that all look alike! That's the artist's prerogative….
Anywho, any day with soft blocks, lino cutters, paper, and my choice of ink colors is bound to be a good day. If you'd like to find out more, here's a link to more at www.NapaValleyArtWorkshops.com…. And if you'd like to join me, it runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Calistoga Art Center.
