Holy Cow! Tomorrow, Wednesday, is set up day at Judith’s studio for the big weekends. Dave is off in Seattle for a week long training and I’m home with the hounds from hell. Last night the dogs and I were out on a gloriously warm walk with my girlfriend and were attacked by a blackContinue reading “Craziness!”

Dog print show: final week
The dogs will be returning home after a month on view at The Arts Center of Corvallis. Their final day is Saturday May 25, noon to 5pm. If you do make it in, please make sure to visit BOTH gallery spaces (yes, they are split between two areas). Wander into the back office/staff space toContinue reading “Dog print show: final week”
Dogs on Display
It’s official, the dogs are really up. This is the first 2 person show I’ve done since my senior exhibit back in 2003. Kind of scary, but good. Check out the site at The Arts Center or better yet, get in there and see it for yourself. It will be up until May 25. ArtContinue reading “Dogs on Display”
The 12th and final image for the show. Rogue is finally printed. The images will be on display from April 30 to May 25 in the Corrine Woodman Gallery at The Arts Center of Corvallis OR. Oh, there has been a request for all the images on cards (Maria!) and it could happen. I’ll startContinue reading “Blue Ball”
Mr. Big Nose is finished!
Zeek, you’re done. My eyes and hands need a break. No more printing until the workshop in Boise! Well, just a little bit but it really doesn’t count. Print title: Close Block print, Kozo paper, oil based ink Hurray!!! 🙂
And it’s still not done yet, but certainly getting a lot closer. Dog noses are such strange things. I debated for quite a while how to approach such a prominent one. They have these little bumps all over the wet surface, something I’m not skilled enough at to represent. Lines work for this experiment. 🙂
The elusive Zeek starting to emerge… Eventually I’ll have to start work on his nose. Labradoodles have the craziest coats, curls in one area then wavy hair in others. Beards too, kind of like Moby. Maybe that’s why I enjoy their look. Proofed in a new Burnt Sienna ink, just for the fun of it.Continue reading “Crazy Fur”
Is he done yet?
The border collie named Rogue has been in the works for a year now and I’m happy to report he’s almost done! He’s certainly come a long way in the past couple of weeks. Today’s state proof is close to completion. Part of me is wanting to pop out a bit more white on hisContinue reading “Is he done yet?”
It’s sunny and over 60 degrees Fahrenheit and I’m inside working on a print. Hmm, somethings wrong here! Anyway, Rogue has been waiting for so long to get attention and today is his day! I used Daniel Smith black water soluble ink to proof it. The stuff dries way too quickly and doesn’t even likeContinue reading “Rogue Progress”
With illness abated and energy levels rising, I’m finally starting to focus on printmaking again. Zeek received a little attention today and proofed in black ink. I’m slowly sneaking up on his nose because it’s one area I feel less confident. Nose texture is so different than hair! The teeth, tongue and gums are alsoContinue reading “Zeek Progress”
