'Unraveling', Monotype on Stonehenge paper,
22x30, $425
If you are interested in purchasing this print please
email me at

I am still doing monotypes at Don's studio. I finished
this one today. It was fun to do, I just played and it
worked. Of course it has no more story telling quality
than any other abstract I have done. Oh well.

I am having a heck of a time getting photos of these
prints. For one the whites of the paper are not coming
across white and for some reason I don't feel they are
as sharp as I'd like them to be. The other issue is the
color of ink is more subtle than it shows here.
I am not going to come unraveled about it though. I
won't be posting them on my website until I get decent
photos, but I want to get them on the blog.

After many months of not creating I was beginning to
wonder if I was an artist anymore. I have had many good
reasons for not being creative, building a bedroom one
of the biggest. My friend and fellow artist, Don Gray asked
me over to his beautiful studio to do monotypes. I believe
he was doing an art 'intervention'. Get this artist creating!

I have not worked with monotypes very much so I am
fumbling my way along. With each monotype I learn more
and get more comfortable with the medium. The approach
is completely different from working with any medium I am
familiar with. Also the creative process is one step removed.
Not only is the art created on a piece of glass and pressed
onto paper, the resulting image is a mirror image of what is
placed on the glass. And then I never know what the ink is
going to do. I like the process as it forces me into the space
of letting go of control, my favorite creative stance.

I am also fumbling along because there is a birth of abstracted
storytelling that I want to express in my my art and I have
no idea how to go about it. This series is helping me find that
