Going to a new home!

Thank you collectors

I have been lucky through the years that my artwork seems to find its way to new homes, sometimes slowly, sometimes in droves. These two just sold to someone who appreciates 25% off and apparently my figurative works! Very happy, thank you.

Shops

Having many shops has actually worked out quite well. Let me back up...
Once upon a time in 2020 I was all ready to set up my booth in Scottsdale when the show was shut down due to COVID. Yeah, I was IN Arizona, my hotel booked and pre-paid, trailer in tow...Ah well...the whole season done, successive shows canceled in the following weeks and I had a bunch of framed and matted stuff with nowhere to sell.



The strong survive and the clever adapt. That year I signed with Sellbrite, an inventory and online listing management software. I opened my own Shopify store now residing at 1000woodcuts.com, opened an eBay store cuz I love bargaining, started selling in Amazon Handmade and Google Shopping and of course, spruced up my Etsy shop. Also have Facebook and Instagram shops although they really just direct to Shopify.

Exciting!? Confusing?! Yep!!! but somewhat successful I must say. Sellbrite makes it all very manageable although it took me until the end of 2020 to set it all up. 

Just an FYI post. Here are the direct links:

Time flies! New print

Exchange time!

Another print made for an exchange among printmakers. To the uninitiated this may seem like a silly exercise, artists make prints and send them to each other. But looking closely, exchanges allow printmakers (many without websites) to send their art to 30 fellow artists and receive a neat portfolio of prints from all over the world. I personally have built an astounding collection of 2500 prints and counting and in exchange, my prints are in possession of a thousand printmakers worldwide. Wow.

Some details and info here:

Below is my contribution to Barenforum.org Exchange #84 with some progress pictures.

And here a YouTube Video of the print making!













Print Title: Liquid Glow
Paper Dimension: 10x15 inches
Image Dimension: 8x12 inches
Block: Cherry plywood x2
Pigment or Ink: Daniel Smith oil based, Gamblin transparent base
Paper: Lotka Rust with leaf inclusions, handmade in Nepal
Edition: 100

warming light
liquid glow
a new dawn

For some reason this size paper inspires figures immersed in nature (often represented by a lone woman, go figure). Nature is my safe place, my healing light, inspiration, stress relief, pure bliss, even if only in imaginary fantasies.
 I combined a puzzle cutout print, the sky, and two rainbow rolls. This combination of techniques allows me to print, with only two blocks, 5 colors and the intermediate colors of gradations, plus the paper color which I used as a midtone.
