The basic image will be familiar to many of you. This is a print I've been working on for quite a while. It is a crazy process: one-of-a-kind, hand lithographic, double-impression transfer on to 140 lb. Arches oil paper, colored with several layers of permanent ink rendering and added graphite rendering. Signed in pencil on the verso. Paper is approx 5x7 inches, deckled edges on two sides with a reverse "Arches Huile" watermark (visible). The image, paper and inks are archival. Live image size is 2 x 3.5 inches. This is the most "realistic" of the series. The others, which have not yet been colored, are more impressionistic with more bleeding and pooling of the image ink, which I like quite a bit, others may prefer this more conventional type of image. I have no idea if I'm ever going to print this image again. I do not take commissions as I cannot predict the outcome of this process. This will be hung at a nearby gallery later this summer.

Thanks guys. I was an art major in college, took figure drawing classes at Art Center College of Design in my teens, studied with an artist who was Raoul Dufy's only student, studied ceramics with no less than three legendary American potters.

... Then, I got sidetracked, for 35 years.

The past year I visited a very fine painter and printmaker, Michael V.T. Woodcock, a couple of days each week when he was ill. He taught me several versions of the printmaking technique I used here. That seemed to get me rolling back into the stream, albeit a humble stream, of art making again.

You never know when you will get a second wind.

Thanks again for the warm nuglies (pronounced "noog-lees").


P.S. This is Michael's site. http://www.michaelwoodcock.com/ We just lost him to his illness a couple of months ago. He had the wickedest, sharpest, bawdiest and most astute comic delivery of anyone I've seen, heard or met.

Very nice Chris! I majored in Fine Art also, with an emphasis in Printmaking and Painting. Did lots of lithos but eventually focused on woodcut. I can't wait to get my second wind!

Looking forward to see more - Perry

Thank you, Perry. I know nothing about how to make woodcuts but really want to learn. Seems like a lot of visual artists or people who have studied fine arts are drawn into shakuhachi. - chris
