work in progress


Like many artists, I don’t usually like to show my work before it is finished. Perhaps it’s the blog medium and the interest of you faithful readers that has made me more willing to show-and-tell some of my work as it unfolds?

A little while ago I showed you the collagraph of a handprint that I wanted to print over an archival inkjet print. This is the first trial print, done on inexpensive proofing paper and very much a work-in-progress. Upon studying the real print, I know I want to do more tweaking of the digital images and their placement, as well as more color trial prints of the collagraph of the hand in the middle which needs to stand out a bit more. More hands, maybe? Textured paper? Questions, decisions…
