New printwork

In preparation for this weekend's Holiday Sale, I've been busy working on some new relief prints:
"Midwinter" reduction woodcut
This new reduction woodcut is titled "Midwinter" -- a nice counterpoint to the midsummer piece I did several months ago.

In August I wrote about Provincetown and the "white-line" or "Provincetown" print technique. Here's a new one of my own:
Untitled block monoprint
And here's another version of the same, on an interesting greenish paper:
untitled block monoprint
I'll have these new pieces at my Holiday Sale this weekend: December 17 and 18 from 1 to 8. More details about the sale can be found here.

Current project: artworks in progress

I've been doing a lot of relief printing of late.

Here's an example of a "whiteline" or "Provincetown" print. You'll recall that back in August I was in P-town and happened upon this indigenous genre at the Provincetown Art Association Museum. So here we have it - a prototype, not necessarily finished.

A little poetry for today

Modern Babel

How can I reach you? Hang on, let's think ...
I could pen you a letter ... Please! you're making me laugh!
Perhaps I could phone you? Now, who would do that?
What about e-mail? Too personal, I'm sure ...
I'm guessing there's facebook. Are we friends there as well?
I could just text you ... My thumbs are too tight!
So when will I see you? Whenever you like.

Tis the season ...

... to be madly busy!

There are a few upcoming events to know about:

Reminder: This Saturday, December 10 at 6pm: Brooklyn Artists Gym is having their 50/50 fundraiser. Buy a ticket for $100 for a chance to obtain one of 50 works of art!
