"Petra" is the legendary rose-red city of the Nabataean people and a monotype print collage I just completed to show in the VIVA 2023 Holiday Art Studio Tour.  The ancient city of Petra, is dramatically concealed behind a wall of mountains, pierced only by the Siq Canyon of Jordan. Built in the 3rd century BC by Nabataeans, who carved beautiful palaces, temples, tombs, storerooms and stables from the soft, red, sandstone cliffs.  Petra is one of my "Magic Carpet Ride" cut monotype paper series, exhibiting in VIVA’s 2023 Holiday Studio Tour   Dec. 2-3 & 9-10 . Check out my studio, #2 on the VIVA Tour Map , and Petra, this Vashon Holiday Art Studio Tour!  

Nineveh, Monotype Collage

Nineveh , Monotype collage with 24k gold, 19 1/2" x 28 1/2" on Somerset Velvet Paper   Danny Kopsak and I will show in "Cut and Paste" at Vashon Center for the Arts Gallery, Aug 11-27, 2023. Opening Aug 11, 5-8pm. The title of our show "Cut and Paste" describes a critical part of the process we each undertake to create compositions cut from paper. My monotype print collage, Nineveh, is one of eight pattern compositions inspired by ancient cities of the Middle East, first printed, then cut and collaged, in a series I call- Magic Carpet Ride! Nineveh the ancient Assyrian city of Upper Mesopotamia, was located on the outskirts of Mosul in modern-day northern Iraq. It is located on the eastern bank of the Tigris River, and was the capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. Check it all out this month at Vashon Center for the Arts during the Summer Arts Festival!
