Description

This is a new digital image, at a higher resolution than the previously posted image. The border that is on the original print has been cropped for a clean look digital edition print.  I call it Drifting because it has an easy, hazy, non-committal flow through the work space. I made this print using the following process:                                                                                                                                                                                 The mono 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 and dried for a few days. 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.
