Prints

These are recent digital prints from an ongoing series.

Above: Silk Trail 307; below: Silk Trail 402
 Both 2012, unique digital prints, paper size 11 x 8.5 inches




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 keep 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 2012--2016. Each is a unique digital print on archival Epson paper, the image within an 11 x 8.5 sheet.
