So what now?

There's often a bit of a lull after I finish a long and complex print, while I try to decide what image to tackle next. But this week there's no time to dawdle... I've got exhibition deadlines!


As a result, Elvis Press-ley and I were up late last night... and back at it first thing this morning. I'm still working through some of the ideas I have for the poetry/visual art collaboration project with haiku writer Eduardo Rey Brummel– experimenting with paper, ink, mica dust (!), embossing... Whoo-ee, am I making a MESS!  But I think I finally have a plan and all the pieces to make it happen. (I think.)

I had originally imagined this piece would be a "one-out," a monotype of sorts, since it's vastly different from my usual approach. But now that I've spent so much time experimenting and creating blocks and such, it seems like editioning is a good idea. We'll see if it turns out to be something that I can make multiples of.

For now, however, I need a little break, so it's off to find some shoes and take a walk to the post office or something. Stay tuned... it could get very strange around here.

Very strange = good. There should be more of it!

You may be making a mess but I see beautiful art here! Glad you took a break and got out for a walk. I find walking essential to my process.
