   The print stirs up in me an experience best named La Playa. I find the imagery reminicent of a desolate Pacific coast beach in Ecuador, visited in the 70's. An unforgetable, surreal and haunting beauty.

   This print is made in a smaller format than my previous monoprints ( 11" x 14" )
 I find that smaller, affords better control of the proccess. Monotypes have been around
 for a long time but don;t have the appeal of more popular genres. Following is a
 description of my approach.
   The monotype print is created by rolling a thin layer of artist oil paint on a glass faced block. Elements of a design are torn, cut or punched out of paper then rolled with appropriate colors of paint and arranged carefully on the painted glass. A sheet of printing stock is registered, dropped onto the glass and rolled with a brayer to force the paint onto the paper's surface. When sufficient pressure has been applied, the single print is pulled from the block. The elements are recycled to print a series of similar but unique compositions. The session continues for as long as possible as the greater the output, the greater the chance that a beautiful print will emerge.
