LAPS 21st National Exhibition
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
HONEY BEE VISIONS - FRITTILARIA
White line reduction woodblock print

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:
