I like to rub and press
tree series 15 x 19 each
I can only classify my latest print works as mono-types, as I've been combining many forms of printmaking. They are mainly done without a press, but alas my dreams are headed to a press one day soon. I've used "roller" prints, that is where you create and image using, in my case, poster and card boards then glue them down and then use a brayer (roller) over a sheet of rice paper to pick up the image, like a rubbing. I've also employed my first love, linocuts.

After exploring more traditional mono-prints with a press, i've realized my limitations,
or lack therefore and compensated. I can't leave well enough alone: I've got to combine.
I've been calling these series the Elements Series but now I think I've reached another part with the tree ones.

Also I''ve finally started to explore larger surface areas and better quality papers, after a suggestion from an instructor.
The larger paper size and better quality rice papers give me the psychology experience of taking this a little more seriously.
Prints are art too.
