Let’s Talk Monotypes

This monotype debuted in a gallery show in 2013 as "1/2 Place". The deal was, one could buy the 1/2 completed version for half price, then accompany me to finish it. No takers then, so I completed it myself, adding the chimerical creature on the left, and another layer of fanciful foliage. 22x30"

I do have two longer posts in the works. One is a photo album and discussion of a progression of monotypes I’ve been working on, the other is book and media related. I’ll edit them, add photos and catch up with the back log soon.

In the meanwhile here is an interview I did with Terry Talty of the Limitless Idea Project during the 2014 Month of Printmaking exhibition. The talk touches on some of the process I’m using right now as I produce the larger works I’ll be discussing.  I’m on the committee that is already beginning work on 2016 MoPrint.

More news: I’ll be teaching a free monotype workshop at the new Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales branch of Denver Public Library on March 17. I’ve updated the “Workshops” page to reflect that and will add time info when I get it, as well as another 8 or so workshops planned at other branches between now and June. These are all open to the public, with non-toxic supplies and materials included.
