I did finally make it down to the opening...lots of car time for me.
(SO sorry I missed you, Elizabeth.)
I've been all over her website, and was thrilled to be able to see one of her prints in person!
It's a good show.
One of the things that impresses me about that gallery is their ability to hang a strong show...this one had a wide range of work, and I liked how they rearranged the gallery show space.

I first discovered American Public Media's "Speaking of Faith" broadcast through an internet search for podcasts about Islam back in 2008 when I was working on my Mecca print. Since then, "Speaking of Faith" (SoF) has been a constant companion in my studio as I've listened, sometimes more than once, to archived interviews with well-known individuals such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Karen Armstrong, and Sharon Saltzberg as well as topical shows that delve into the complex intersections between science, religion, politics and ethics that are at play in our world. It would not be an overstatement to say that there's a little bit of "Speaking of Faith" in each of my prints.

So imagine my delight when SoF's online editor Trent Gillis contacted me (via Twitter, no less) with a proposal to collaborate.

Subject: Two-tone Paleo-Seahorses
Posted by: Ellen Shipley

Ok, so I printed up some paleo-seahorses today.  First I've printed since I recarved the block.  I like this a lot better.  Now I can forget about it for awhile.  It's been haunting me to get it printed.

I did the first print (upper right in this shot) in yellow ochre with burnt sienna tapped in.  Need to order more yellow ochre, so for the other three I mixed yellow and burnt sienna for the base color, with burnt sienna tapped in.  I think I did a pretty good job of matching.

Now I can move on to something else.  Anything else.  ;-j
