These are recent digital prints from an ongoing series. All are available through the Boston Drawing Project at Carroll and Sons Gallery, Boston.
As I was printing images of my paintings, an encaustic-on-panel series called Silk Road, the printer cartridge started running out of ink. What resulted was a print that had little resemblance to the painting but was a new and, I thought, beautiful image all its own. I immediately began to manipulate the resulting images by reprinting and overprinting. A new series came into being: Silk Trail. You can read about its origin here.
As I approach my 400th print, I have learned a lot about how to make the printer and those last drops of ink do what I want them to do. Still, there's the element of surprise that keeps me up until 4:00 a.m. feeding sheets of paper into the printer and holding my breath to see what comes out.
All work here is from 2019. Each is a unique digital print on archival Epson paper, the image approximately 8 by 8 inches within an 11 x 8.5 sheet.
