I couldn't resist:
How about an exchange based on our idea/portrait of Dave?

Amen to Jan Telfer persevering shipping costs. If she was a
coordinator, I'd be honored to ship to Perth and I'd slip her a couple
of extra dollars for chocolate hugs and kisses, too! We love you Jan!

Congratulations to Grandma Marilynn Smith on her brand new red-headed
grand baby BOY!!!

If I were to be in Exchange #22, I'd pick Warhol, or most influenced
printmaker. Since I haven't studied historical printmakers much yet, I
don't look after one who is deceased. So I'd probably carve a picture
of all my Baren friends for each of them being a great influence on me
thru their kindness, generousity, and knowledge. Besides, if I just did
a print of Dave, he'd be extremely embarrassed.

Another great idea for a print exchange is "Bridges". Everyone could do
a local bridge in their city or a favorite bridge. (Inspired by Harry
French's great bridge print :) The one I love near me is called the
Robling Bridge which was a prototype to the Brooklyn Bridge. I love the
"hum" of bridges.

Welcome Ewoud! I like your prints you showed us. They all show great
emotion. I especially like your self-portrait. Keep us the great work!

Welcome all new Baren members! I will try and catch up on my mail and
meet any other new people. Glad you're here!

My thoughts and prayers are with all Baren members who are experiencing
adverse weather. Would you all please let us know when your storms have
passed and you are safe?

Themes seem ok for the next exchange, especially the Warhol " I want to be a machine"..though I think and hope that some Bareners are spiritually Luddites, but perhaps not because we are all computer literate.
Mellissa's idea for a reverse "I don't want to be a machine" is even better!
Praising a printmaking hero or a poem would also be fine for me because my hero was not only a great printmaker, but a poet : William Blake.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

I don't think I can take credit for the influential printmaker, someone
else came up with that, I just seconded the motion! I like all the
ideas that have been put forth, so anything is okay with me.

Whatever I make will include some extras for some fairly reliable
clients. It would pose a significant challenge to do an influential
printmaker print and still make it into something they can relate to.
It could be done, but it would not be my favorite for that reason.
While I am completely into the spirit of the exchange, I cannot
alienate those wonderful people who support my work. Most of the
other suggestions were ok to me, especially the poem and machine ones.
Although, I might opt to do "not a machine" as someone else mentioned


Art...the new piece of mind.
