You've Got to be Kidding #1 - Original Collagraph

I saw this guy at a farm late last spring. Needless to say he had a lot of character so I thought I would attempt creating a collagraph of him as he peered over the fence. Arthur Osver would have called this print one of my "whipping posts" since I have modified the background many times. I think I will leave it here for now. On to something else.
This collagraph measures 7" x 9.25"
Paper size is 9" x 11.25"
If you have any questions please email me.

Blue Rockfish #2 - Mixed Media

After looking at several of the fish that I posted quite some time ago I decided I needed to take them farther.  I added more color & texture to the piece on the bottom. I thought the background needed more attention.  If you click on the fish you will get a larger view and will hopefully see some of the layers I have added. Originally colored tissue paper was glued to the paper prior to printing the plate composed of various textures to define the fish and the border (black ink).  Once that was established I printed multiple layers of texture on the border and most recently I printed several layers of color on the entire background.  More modified fish to come.
Image size is 12.5" x 20"
