Variations on a Crane Theme

Expanding on my "Crane in Carmel" print effort (see earlier blog entry), I thought I'd try some digital variations including a print (above) and a new fabric design (below).

R.I.P. E.A. Autrey

My brilliant, talented, funny, loving, difficult dad died this week, two weeks shy of his 94th birthday.  I shot this video of him on a trip-of-a-lifetime in May/June 2013 when Papa and I traveled with sister Laura back to Macy, Indiana to see where E.A. Autrey grew up.  He will be missed.

Blue-Crowned Motmot Monotype

Best unadulterated print of mine, made during the 2nd San Anselmo Printmakers artwork day, was this blue-crowned motmot chine colle monotype.   The process included an Adobe Illustrator B&W drawing, of a motmot bird collaged into a photograph of ginger, taken in Maui, then printed on Kozo paper, then glued to 100% cotton rives bfk paper, then monoprinted with akua inks and liquid pigments using a polycarbonate plate.
