These are some of the Montype prints I made this spring. Except the triptych, which is Drypoint.

 All, but the triptych, are 5x7 inches.


This triptych was fun to create but awful to try to wipe and print.

I have to stop the details thing.

Sorry for the very bad shot, but I just wanted this and the others up on the Blog.


Some of these are similar to the images I showed, and sold, at Artomatic 2012. They come out different very time, which, of course, is why they are Monotypes. 

I'm in need of a press.  Since leaving Alexandria not only meant leaving some wonderful fellow artists, friends and, colleagues, it also meant leaving the great Discover Graphic Association. 

if you are interested in purchasing any of these prints, please contact me at my email, katart3485@gmail.com.  Each print is $400, unframed.

I'm nearing the final push.  And I'm really pushing it.  Working on drypoints, want to do more aquatints, and painting big with acylics.  Every time I work with acylics, I am reminded of why I love oil!
January is ending, and my Bellehaven Marina monotype will soon be coming out of the current show at the Art League Gallery.  Next month is the Patron's Show, the Art Leagues fabulous fund, and fun, raiser.  If I have time, and $, I will try to put in a couple of prints.  I will definite have a piece in the Leagues' "Student Show" at the end of Feb. 
After a quick trip to StA, I will be posting everything I've finished.

After a restful trip to my home in StA Florida, I am ready to face the Fall!

To begin with, a new show, Signals at DCAC, were I have been invited to show a new monotype.  It's a version of a smaller print I showed and sold at Artomatic.  This one has a very different mood.  Some of that is because I am working larger, 7x8, and also using oil based inks.  Bone black & Graphite.  With monotype, each creation has it's own vision.  Ink and the press give the works a new language.  JW Mahoney is the curator.    

Here is a photo of the print I will be showing:


 Indiana Haze 2, is framed at 16x20, $425.
Please contact the DCAC, 202-462-7833, if you are interested.

There are one or two other versions in this image which I will post tomorrow or Saturday.  Sorry, I'm not much of salesperson.  But I will start posting all my monotypes.  I've got to find that "widget" again!

More August News

In addition to being one of 49 prints selected, out of 500+, for the National Small Works show at this years Washington Printmakers Gallery, my print won an award!  The juror, Brian Garner, of the Litho Shop, awarded the new Tran Van-Dinh prise to Indiana Statues.

More News!  Another print, from the Artomatic show, Lake Bruce was accepted into the Art League Gallery's annual Scapes show.  



I like this little print (5x7).  I hope to make more work from the drawings and photo I took at this small cove on Lake Bruce in Indiana.

I will be showing at the Art League Gallery and posting new work to this blog.

Artomatic is coming to a close. It’s been a resounding
success with so many visitors, who came to see the art, or hear the music, or watch a performance, or film, and stayed to enjoy the other offerings.

In some way I really pity New York, LA, London or anywhere else that does not have a community of artists who can pull off this gargantuan event, consistently, with an all-volunteer ensemble. Artists are so very skillful, ingenious, and resourceful people. Just think of what could be possible if AOM had a solid financial base!
 By artists, for everyone.
I am so amazed with all the excellent feedback and comments I have received. That so many of them are from fellow artists, has truly made all the years of work to get to this point valuable to me. All the work I have sold has been to artists. That’s both wonderful and downright scary!

Oh I’m going to have to work soooo much harder! I have to go back to scratch and translate the sense and atmosphere I’m able to get manipulating one color, black, with more color. I’m talking oil paint here, so much easier to work with. But I do love ink and can never move to far away from it. And to do this all with Florida sunshine. Oh, this will be a fun challenge!
