etching press … poetry and what now ?

well … a sad happy day … i sold my etching press … i had been hemming and hawing for a year now and finally 3 months ago i put out a lot of flyers advertising the press, at a healthy but well-situated price (it was worth its weight thats for sure and better priced than many shop bought equipment).  This press was handmade, designed by an artist and very well engineered – it is a beautiful structure that i was loathe to sell.  I figured, if i got what i asked for, it was meant to be .. and so it all came to pass …

Thing is tis wonderful to pass it on to another and NO ONE without passion is going to buy a press !  … I figure that even if I get to doing nothing at all but art, starting tomorrow, the press is still not going to get a really good look in because my work has gone off in all kinds of other directions that i am very excited about …

so, roll on winter …  lets see what it brings (artwise).

in trying to choose just one picture that gives you a bit of the etching press i still settled on one that, well, is not an etching …

(drypoint and then drypoint/mixed media) … 🙂

having got together a portfolio of photos to send out to the next competition, tis time  for art again … i started throwing paint around, spray painting colour and just enjoying the freedom of the medium …

here are the initial stages to forthcoming collages …

collage

currently steeped in the form … i go to ‘read’ the art of others … and the work of Janet Jones is where i go often … there is a beautiful sophisticated sensibility in her works that i love ….

i, on the other hand have been struggling the last few days

every now and again … something comes forth …

img_5427 <<< Seeking  a title … any ideas ?

art comes unbidden – but

you do need to hunker down and do it when the time is right …. again, i must qualify that – the time is right when your mind is in the zone ..but you cant get there until everything aligns – ideas, raw materials, space and time  …   spread it all out and do it – for hours, or in this case days …

below, the process unfurls – first the papers in 1sta nd 2nd or third stages ….  then further stages which are lost in the layering of time and intent (that is lost and found) … then a little light and one or two (or three possibilities) …  (pics have been posted very quickly with rough matting to block out extraneous matter) .. final artworks when complete will be posted to the fynearts site.

camera club august placement

i am enjoying immensely the feedback from these monthly showings of photos … and its always gratifying to be well-placed …

this one took first place in the EDI for August – (enhanced digital image).

Its Title SYMBOLS

i have three separate photographic elements here (clouds, poppies, statue) from photos taken in my garden in Tasmania, on a walk and a small town in Umbria.
