Buzz of the City

I am taking a Drypoint Etching Class and I am so loving the whole process! The powerhouse etching on the right was an experiment and it did come out not as I wished but I still liked it so I wanted to add it to my art journal.

I will share some photos of the class and samples soon. For the print above I experimented printing on a monotyped piece of paper. As some of you might now I love the Powerhouse here in Jersey City so it is a repeating theme in my artwork and I even made a stamp with it :)

I like the idea of adding prints into my art journal – I am still exploring this. I am also thinking of buying a small printing press that is not costing a fortune but I am careful and still investigating.

Does anyone of you have experiences with small converted die cut machines or small letter press to use with drypoint or lino cuts? I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences!

    I am thinking that you can add architect to your list of artist and paralegal.
    Enjoy your weekend Nat!
