Theseus and the Minotaur

Theseus and the Minotaur   Monotype Print with copper leaf

Mothers Day and the second weekend of the Vashon Island Spring Studio Tour is coming up.  I hope to see many more friends and patrons visiting my studio and participating in the final weekend of the art tour May 12-13.

I thought I would post a couple images of artwork that sold last weekend.  Theseus and the Minotaur (above) and Hector from the previous blog are now hanging on new walls!

  1. I wonder if you have talked a bit about the technique on this blog? I am interested in how you get the clean black line...I love your work. Maybe next studio open I can get over there.
    Thanks for sharing it.

    1. Hi Elizabeth, I hope to have my new studio built and open for the 2014, Vashon, Holiday (Dec.) Studio Tour and also hope that you may visit so that we may talk about process. To explain for now, I cut linocut or softblock for linework if I am making a Mono print, any size edition, images and I paint line work (generally with black gesso) when I am using line in Monotype. The image above is a red/orange ghost printed over a yellow background that had been printed on Rives BFK heavyweight. The copper was applied over painted burnt senna gesso and the black line work was painted with Danial Smith black gesso.
