The 2nd mosaic on exhibit in Va and D.C. Called the Mystical Death of St. Peter made for the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Fiesta. I hope to complete a color woodblock of my mosiac as well. It's a long job!

Here are some photos from the March 1 opening of "Wood and Water", an all mokuhanga exhibit at Wenniger Gallery in Rockport, Ma. Matt Brown, Paulette Nejko, Sandy Wadlington and I had lots of fun hanging the show in a small, tightly packed space.

My apologies to Paulette for not having any photos to share of either her or her beautiful work. Paulette had a four and a half hour drive and hadn't arrived yet when my friend took the pictures. Paulette is a Baren member so hopefully she'll have some photos to send in, too???

For the demo, I used Matt Brown's portable printing bench. The top section slides under the printing table like a drawer. The box on which I'm sitting and the box with the dampened prints (on left) fit into each other and fit neatly inside the drawer.

I'm using a plastic disk baren over a sheet of mylar to print the first block of my new cat print.

Here I'm preparing to add a few drops of water to my brush. Matt's blocks for his demo print are in the front of the photo.

The main display area for my prints is on the second floor of the gallery. I was lucky
to get a relatively clear area in the very packed gallery.

Sandy was teaching a workshop on the day of the opening but her small gems were well received. See the red dot? We're hoping the walls have just a row of nails six weeks from now.

The main display area for Matt's prints is the wall near the entrance on the
first floor.

This is Mary Ann Wenniger, the co-proprietor of Wenniger Gallery and a printmaker herself. The place truly is oceanfront ... see the fish jumping? The seagulls are fake.

Here's Matt watching while waiting for his turn to print. Mr. Wenniger is doing his best to distract me by attaching a mike and telling me to speak while he films the action.

The show is up until April 26, 2003 so if anyone is in the area, please drop in.

Hey, everybody -- just wanted to let you know that I "dropped in on" Frank Trueba over the weekend while I was visiting my daughter at UC Santa Cruz. Frank was making paper in a class at the Cabrillo College (wet process and a little bit stinky, but it looked like fun -- I think it'll be a while before he can make anything smooth enough for his woodcuts, though).

Anyway, my wife and I spent a quarter hour watching paper-making and chatting about prints and the nice weather... Here are a couple of pix:

My wife, Linda, on the left, and Frank Trueba and the paper making teacher holding up their recently made paper.

And here's another one -- this time of Frank and me with our eyes closed:

Frank has a show up of his silkscreens in downtown Santa Cruz at "Lather" if you're in the neighborhood you ought to stop in. Franks a very congenial guy, and it was a pleasure to stop in and say "HI" !!
