A New Chapter!

Oh my heavens.  This is exciting.  In the last couple of months, I finally realized where my art path was leading me....


I am over the moon about it.  You know that  feeling you get when you're in the thick of learning something new, and everything about it seems fresh and exciting?  Yep, that's where I am.  I liken it to being in love. And I am most definitely in loooove with relief printmaking!

In the next couple weeks I'll be taking some printmaking classes - first up is "Kitchen Lithography" with Daniel Gousha at the Mill Paper and Book Arts Center in Rhinelander.  That's this Saturday, and I'll take lots of photos!  :)  Next up - Angie Zimmerman's "Wood Cuts" class at EBCO in Sheboygan, in conjunction with the Sheboygan Visual Arts group.  I know already that both classes are going to be AMAZING.  I can't wait!

I am SO new to this new venture, so you'll be learning along with me.  The printmaking community, much like my collage community, seems to be a very small, tight-knit group.  I love that.  I love that I keep meeting new folks all the time and that they are so very generous with their advice and expertise.  :)

I hope you like the new blog!  I also have a Facebook page for it, in case you'd like to "like" it.  :)  In the meantime, here's a tree that I made with a regular white eraser a couple weeks ago at my friend Kim Geiser's "Ephemerafest" mini retreat.  :D
