Studying Lights and Shadows in Confinement

A few of a series of shadows and lights I have painted on recycled pieces, this Spring 2020.

Getting to Meaning

These monotypes were created during a workshop at Crow’s Shadow Art Center, Umatilla Reservation, near Pendleton. It is part of the PNCA Continuing Education certificate program I have entered this year. I have learned a lot during this workshop. The first few days were spent trying to get back into printing and getting familiar with colored inks. I had  done color monotype only once before,  and never really practised good registration when printing. Now I do… Frank, Debbie and Marie were great teachers. The studio was a luxurious, generous and exciting place.  After slogging through the three first days, I had inspiration in the last hours and figured out what I needed to do. It went very fast from then on.
