Printmakers Show

Every November, the Printmaking Society of Honolulu holds a benefit sale, and each member can display and sell their work. Since I haven't printed in over a year, I had nothing new to show, so I dug down into my old prints. I sold some prints, and most of them were over 20 years old. I guess my work has to take time to ferment. Click on the images to see them larger.
Forgotten Landscape - etching
This is one of the very first etchings I did in my very first etching class, during my very short stay at University of Georgia in 1984. I learned so much in that class, and the teacher was wonderful. At the time I thought this piece was a bit trite, but I liked it anyway. It was a stage in another print, so there are only one or two of this version.

Carp Dream, lithograph
From my first (and only) lithography class at University of Georgia. The teacher hated it and said awful things to me, but everyone else who has seen it likes it. 

"...and the wind blew the sky into her hair..." - etching
One of my poetic titles. Sometimes the title can sell the piece; as in this case, the woman who bought it told me she loved it for the title.This work is at least 20 years old.

  1. I liked all of these. I think the carp is my favorite. I remember seeing it before. Isn't it funny how time makes us see our work in new ways. Also we should learn to ignore the comments of teachers when we believe in our piece!
