I read about The Happy Flag Project via Such Designs and I couldn't resist making a couple of them. The making of a flag to greet His Holiness The Dailai Lama made me feel happy and already blessed. The idea of the wind carrying my prayer along with thousands of... Continue reading

It's hard not to explore a different way carve my lino plate. This is a sketch I've been wondering about for quite some time. Why was I doubt full?? I thought that it doesn't relate to my past "random pieces" which in the end were not so random. I showed... Continue reading

One thing leads to another, I believe the trick is to keep going and trying everything that comes to mind. I want to try new ideas and also the many different variations, and repetitions. I think that at some point all that I make will interconnect one way or another.... Continue reading

And I was wondering what I was going to make with all the random plates. Looks like giving myself into the process can be more fun and joyful that purposely planning a finished product. It's a big monoprint, 18" x 24" on Hahnemuhle paper (plus the paper that is left... Continue reading

Another random plate, more pods like the ones I made before. Maybe some day I should post the sketches I made for this. I do love drawing, I love it so much that one of my daughters wonder where do I get the patience to draw three hours straight. For... Continue reading

Goofing around, I made three of these plates. I saw "potential" on them all. I'll show you later how I used them. Continue reading

After printing this plate with a green background, I decided to take the whole background away so that it had a white background. As I said before, it's a creative process, and so far I've been whilling to try it all. I'm pleased with it. Continue reading

Last week was a very productive week. I finished this print and I printed 8 of them. There's still a lot to learn but I'm happy with the results. I love the prints as much as the plates, this is what is left of the black print. It was a... Continue reading

It turns out print 22/52 happens to be a back ground. I'm catching up on this printmaking posting project. What can I tell you about this print? That I was hoping I made a good registration for it so that the print that goes on top fits right in. It's... Continue reading

Dang it!! I missed by that much. That open space at the top of my print gave it all away. I like the solid black around it. One thing I did learn from this print: stick to the plan. A/P on tissue paper. I do love to print on tissue... Continue reading

It's being 4 weeks without posting. Not that I didn't want to but I got kind of blocked right at this print. I hate it when it happens and even when I know I have to breath and keep working, I feel I keep "messing up." I want to believe... Continue reading

I wish I have time to give everything I'd like a try! In the past weeks I found this amazing hexagon quilt on Pinterest, and I just can take it out of my mind. Yes, I do have a hexagon... Continue reading

I suddenly felt the need to concentrate on this and another quilt that I've never finished. I guess life has being a bit crazy around here that what I was craving is that peaceful rhythm making something [perfect] and by... Continue reading

Three more random plates happened this week. I was so happy to be at the studio that I got in the mood for making a small edition. I didn't have the right paper so I just printed on cardstock to make stationary. I printed 20 of them. The all came... Continue reading

Still catching up with my weekly posts... Pods, that's how they look to me. I started this plate as a background plate. It's kind of fun and literally vibrant. It gives me some other possibilities that I'll be soon exploring. I printed this plate on 50%cotton Fabrianno, and it doesn't... Continue reading

Even the best laid plans go astray... When I planned to post a print every week I didn't say they'd be perfect. Well, that week of April 25th, and May 2nd did not go as plan; therefore I'm posting today what happend [print-wise] those weeks. Both pictures are part of... Continue reading

For the past couple of weeks, I've dedicated some time to my hexie project. It's a [very long] table runner for my [very long] dinning table. I'm in the binding part and for that I had to make some research.... Continue reading

Lots of reading, drawing, carving... the creative juices are flowing. This one still needs some cleaning but I won't get ride of al the "gestures" around it. I'm wishing I can show at once everything I did this week... Yet I decided this was a one print a week deal... Continue reading

I've been working on this print in my little studio time. It's far from what I ambition. I keep coming back to it trying to learn something from this plate, and I still don't get it. All I feel is frustration about it. It's busy and noisy... Yet, I'm still... Continue reading
