Cave Horse Roller Print

"Cave Horse" is another piece created with roller printing.  In this image, the horse torso was found by painting the background with light washes of watercolor .  The result is a small but mysterious print, only 4" x 6".

Roller Print Landscape

This non-objective horizontal design happened when I manipulated ink on a plate and used fine grid with ink.  The shapes are dramatic and, of course, unexpected.

Mountain with Totem Roller Print

This image was created by rolling printing ink on a plate and then printing it on to paper.  The image was not pre-determined but rather was a spontaneous application of ink, rolled, and scraped with the edge of a piece of mat board.  This image is only 4" x 4" and actually has greater contrast from what the photo shows.

This is a fun and experimental type of art--just what I love!

Whimsical Women

 These whimsical images are monoprints in the style of Henri Matisse.  These are my first attempts at painting faces directly on the plate before running them through my press.  They are kind of cute, I think.  I may try some more.
