Yellow Landscape

I printed the landscape linocut (that I had first made for my continuing studies class demo) on top of the yellow for an exchange.

I printed one of them on the back for fun because I thought the texture was interesting.

I printed lots of solid layers of yellow today... all for yet another new exchange print.

Art.Downtown Update

Yesterday & today I spent some time hanging my work up at the Rapid Growth space at 9 Jefferson for Art.Downtown. It's just about done & ready except for one I want to hang in a window (because we didn't have a ladder today), and I need to add some artist labels. I didn't take a photo because I don't want to spoil the surprise of what work I decided to show.

So again, I hope to see all of you who can make it this Friday, 6-11pm in downtown Grand Rapids for Art.Downtown.2012 !
