::: Snowy Day in NYC :::

It is snowing now the whole day ... but it doesn't stick. It is a great day to create/work on a new piece. My plates are ready to be worked on and the creative juice is flowing, even after a stressful day at work. My motivation is the deadline coming closer and closer to my show opening in April. I am still debating about an accent piece - I planned to print my work on fabric and let it hang at one wall overlapping each other. But I am not sure that I will be able to do that ... the time is running pretty fast.
We'll see!

::: I am on a roll :::

The show comes closer and closer and I am creating and creating ... I am on a roll, and it is no end is in sight. I am very busy at work, but I use my free time either to create new etchings (or watch the Olympics ... I love this event). I just finished a 2 plate/color Aquatint, and I am very pleased, it came out very nice. The size of one plate is 12" x 12" and the second one is 5.5" x 5.5" which is printed in the center of the big plate. - I did the size with a good reason, there is the footprint competition of Norwalk is coming up, and I am planing to send the etching into the race. Maybe I will have a second one ready soon ... the plates are prepared to work on them.
More to come soon!

::: Drypoint - here it is :::

So, here it is, as I promised, this is the drypoint I was working on for a long long time. As I mentioned in my last blog, I did print it yesterday and I am very pleased with the print. So look for yourself and let me know what you think.

::: Drypoint - 3 :::

Hi hi,
another cold day, it is a long and cold winter. I don't know, it almost seems like the winter is colder and longer than usual. But I think we say this every year. - Now back to my drypoint, today was the day, I went to the studio and printed my big drypoint. And ... it is beautiful. The inking was a bit difficult and extensive, but it paid of. I love the print and I it will be part of my upcoming show in April at the Manhattan Graphics Center in NYC. I will scan the print and put it up here soon so you can see it.
