I like to do things besides write, and I know I’ve posted at least one picture of my sculptures before. I have more, and really intend to add them. But that’s for later.
The above untitled piece is the beginning of my foray into printmaking. I created the original image by combining found sources in Photoshop and then transferring the etching to a plexiglass plate. The first two editions were in black ink, this and a partner piece in red. The entire effort is very process oriented and really requires you to be present. It’s very different from any other endeavor I’ve tried before. And a lot of fun.

i really like this…it has that feel to it that it could be really old, the image something between pagan and something from Asia.
Thanks. It’s not bad for someone who can’t draw.
Was beginning re-reading the book Thoughts Without a Thinker, and in the preface the author mentions the Zen master Hakuin, who took up painting at the age of 60. Was looking at some of his work, and thought of your post.
That’s awesome! Thanks for the comparison. I know I’ve heard his name, probably in one of the Zen koans I read years ago.
He is the originator of the koan “sound of one hand clapping”
I knew his name sounded familiar!
I suppose I should mention he is considered one of Japan’s great artists.
Hey that is really cool! I really like it. A bit like the Egyptian bird gods, but Asian (or something like that!) Nice work 🙂
It’s quite impressive! And such process oriented creativity will no doubt lead to a fountain of new inspiration touching all of your endeavors. Or so it happens for me, anyway. 😀
Excellent! and everyone can draw. (K)
Thank you very much!
That came out great!
Thank you. It was fun to try something new.
Wow, Mr. Crow!
Very cool. Have fun with your new hobby.
Thank you, Rose 🌹.
This is fantastic!! Where can I see more of your art?
That’s pretty much it for printing. I just started taking a class.
Looks like you’re off to a great start, then! I look forward to seeing more prints! And any other art you do.
I post some more once I get some more done. Thanks again!
