Baren Sumit San Antonio
We will have artist from Provincetown to share White-line with us. We will be having a White-line demo with William Evaul, who will help those interested in exploring this technique.

From his web-site: "A Provincetown artist since 1970, William Evaul produces oil paintings and white-line woodblock prints as well as works on paper: drawings, watercolors and monotypes and monoprints. He employs a vibrant color palette and a kind of figurative expressionism to create a wide variety of images including musicians, New

Evaul has produced over 100 woodblock images and over 1,000 prints. He pushes the limits of the medium by utilizing multiple layering of color and expanding the images in size and complexity. Seeking out the finest of hand-made Japanese papers and other water-leaf papers, he produces small, medium and large scale work, the largest of which measure 3' x 6'. A print from his Muse-Musicians series, The Joint is Jumpin' was included in the Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibition sponsored show, Provincetown and the Art of Printmaking."

So, one more reason to join us!

Hi, sorry for the reply weeks later. I am just going through 327 postings to be up to date. I live in Newcastle, NSW, and I would be interested in a get together in Oz sometime. At the moment I am saving to attend the international printmaking conference in Melbourne later this year. If I get to travel OS, I intend tracking down local members for a coffee and chat. Be on notice Baren members, when I eventually travel, you may be visited!

> Alex you were sitting in the front row too - how funny is that! The woman on my right was scribbling notes as fast as she could so I told her (& another woman) about Baren - I hope they check us out.
> You know other Baren members in Brisbane? Maybe we Australians should have a mini Baren Forum over here to coincide with the real one. I always feel so far away & left out of the fun *sulks* - anyone interested?
> The thing that most fascinated me was that cloth covered block he kept wiping the pigments from the carved blocks with he wiped off blue pigment with it, then yellow pigment, then pink using the same dirty looking cloth and the colours didn't all turn to mud!!
> Have you tried wetting the back of the block as well as the front to help prevent your block warping?

Subject: Starry Background
Posted by: Ellen Shipley

Cut & paste Mother Nature and Thor over a starry background.  I want to do something like my Once In a Blue Moon woodcut for the stars.

Ordered paper.  Probably carve this on a 6"x8" block.  Print size in chuban, 7.5"x10" for Baren exchange #48.  I'll print some on larger paper, maybe 10"x11".  Easier to mat and frame larger paper.

Subject: Final printing
Posted by: Sue

Here's the final print. I made few changes to the block. Just opened out the two 'l's in Woollatt at the bottom and added a few more lines of texture to the gull's tum.

I haven't editioned it or anything, just made about 20 prints but I'm happy to swap if anybody wants a bookplate swap. I'm thinking of doing a bookplate for my Mum, an unrepentant bookworm; she's got so many books though, I'd never be able to print enough by hand to keep up! Just a small edition, then that she can paste into her favourites.

Meanwhile, I'm working on a new block idea and will post the sketches as soon as I have something intelligible.
