LAPS 21st National Exhibition

Hello, dear readers. I just noticed that it's been 22 days since my last post, which is unacceptable, but that's how busy I've been. Unfortunately, most of my busy has nothing to do with woodblock prints.

Here's a little piece of news, though. I have a print in the Los Angeles Printmaking Society's 21st National Exhibition, which opens Saturday, October 26, at California State University Northridge Art Galleries. I hope if you're in the area you'll stop by and see the show, which runs through December 14.

Honey Bee Visions - Frutilaria


White line reduction woodblock print

edition: 15

This is the second white line grid print I’ve made (see the first one here) and I think I’m getting better at it. I’m calling these “Honey Bee Visions” because this is somewhat the way that a bee, with its compound eyes, would see a flower. Artist/scientist Andy Giger has a page on his web site called B-EYE that shows more accurately how a honey bee sees (more elongated than the prints I'm making).

Here are a few more photos taken at various stages:
