Hello Artomatic visitors!

I hope you are having a wonderful time exploring Washington's best Art extravaganza.  I feel very privileged to be able to live in an area that supports, and so enthusiastically, an all volunteer, non-juried presentation of all the local artists have to offer.   

My contribution to the show is on the 9th floor, wayfiner 09-252.  

I've hung a group of Monotypes, see the link below for an explaination of this print method, that I have created over the past several years. Each print image is 5 x 7 inches. As you can see I work with landscapes. My principle medium is oil, but I have been work with prints, on and off for many years. I like working with black, light and grays the ink gives me. And although this may seem like a limited pallet, in reality, it actual area is a variation of greens and greys, with the odd yellow or white area. So I prefer to limit the color to focus on the design and texture of an image.

Part of the wonderful freedon Artomatic allows an artist is to show work that would never make it to a gallery wall. It's very rare that a small group of Monotypes by any artist would be shown unless they were VERY famous, think Dega, Diebenkorn, Johns. 

Here is the price list for the works shown:
1. Horse Barn Hill, $350 SOLD

2. Indiana Roads, $375  SOLD

3. Hunting Creek,* $400

4. Lake Bruce, $400

5. Belle Haven Marina, $400

6. Indiana Haze, $350  SOLD

7. Beacon Hill, ** $385  SOLD

8. C & O Canal, $400

9. Indiana Statues, $375  SOLD

Accepted in Juried Shows:

* Washington Printmakers Gallery, National Small Works 2010; Art League Gallery, 2010, Crisp-Ellert Art Museum, 2011

** Art League Gallery 2010

The price list is now posted on the wall at Artomatic.  So if you are really interested in these prints, please let me know soon, so I can put a little red dot next to the image.  As you know, the art work can not be removed from Artomatic until the end of the show.
