About The Artist

Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Digital Printmaking

Albuquerque Rooftops, 2012, Boogie Board Drawing on ricepaper (SOLD)

As promised in my Tuesday blogpost, I am posting version #2 of my Boogie Board drawing "Albuquerque Rooftops."

For version #2, I eliminated the green color and printed the image on a natural color rice paper having a pronounced fiber content that activates the surface. To me, the image has a look similar to a "traditional" hand pulled print—the kind we did in art school, way-back-when, before the digital age. I like it.

Of course, this version, with all that blank space, seems to beg for some hand coloring. So, I may get the color pencils out and see what a few touches of hue do for the image.

Thanks for taking a moment to read this post. And thanks to those readers who emailed me your comments about this image. I appreciate it! Have a good weekend.
