Teaching at the Clearing in Door County-2016 test

I'm just wanting to see what these look like on the internet.
One will represent me for the Introduction to woodblock printmaking.
Possibly this first one.

The Cedarburg Art Museum now has a small selection of the small whiteline prints.
This year, I'm Artist # 21 on the FALL ART TOUR.
Since 27 of my works are in the 
Cedarburg Art Museum 
until November 8th when the show closes,
I printed little bits of the more detailed blocks
just for this weekend.

I didn't have time to make more than one print of most of the newest

Lone Rock Airport

Here is the fourth new print for the Cedarburg Art Museum show. 
It measures about 9" x 24".
Photographed on the block so it's not square.

It's done. 
I'll take it off the block today.
It needs to be flattened and photographed.
This one will be in the Cedarburg Art Museum show.

Hotel Room

This first one, is print #2, off the "hotel room" block.
13.75" x 21" is just off the block
and needs flattening,
and a good photograph.
Below is another hotel room.
Print 1 and 2 from a 4"x6" block of last years hotel room 
when teaching at the Peninsula School of Art.

(Dodgeville...print #1...15.5" x 23.5")
It's a cell phone photo, 
so color's off.
Right off the block, it no longer feels like paper, 
but a well slept in bed sheet.
It will look really good once it's flattened.

Hotel Room--whiteline wood print

I will be teaching

I have begun another print.

I will be splitting my time between this,
going to school to learn the lost wax casting process,
and making a road map for an island of businesses which are the 
heart of Cross Plains, Wisconsin.
I'd like to get the map done by Trout Days.

 So, it begins!

This time I'm using Shina Plywood,
because I've not used it in a very long time,
and I happened to have a nice big sheet here.

Whiteline Woodblock printing workshop at Peninsula School of Art

I'm teaching it again!
Workshop ID PD1507

I've yet to update this WoodPrints blog,
but, in the mean time
you can see a collection of my WhiteLine wood print posts

I've got wood being readied for new blocks 
the progress of which I hope to post.

Right now my mind is being held hostage by a Paddlefish.
