Some stuff

Ruth Channing working on her untitled 24” x 36” etching…a little spit bite action.

I take great pleasure watching people do what they do for a living. This is no exception….so beautifully and effortlessly executed.

Diggin’ up some history. My friend Ramsay, a printmaker /artist/instructor here in Baltimore, was gardening and found a litho stone that was part of a retaining wall in his yard.

My guess it was an artist who was so embarrassed by his drawing, that he buried it as far into the earth as he could. How many times have you felt like that?????!!!! “I ain’t grainin’ this shit again, I think I’ll just hind it….two feet under”!

When I was working at MICA years ago, a similar situation happened. A dude was digging a new foot path in his yard, and discovered six beautiful gray stones that he then donated to the print shop. Never know what you’ll find.

Gum Arabic. Not just for printmaking.

Good summertime image. That ice cream would last one minute in my hands/mouth.
