My new prints are here! I finished signing them this past weekend while hanging out with Gina Stepaniuk, who was there at SHG working on her first acetates. Her print is going to be soooo amazing. I just know it. She brought in the original painting, which I’ve seen before, but it reminded me of what an incredible painter she is. She is right now working on her MFA at Claremont and it doesn’t sound fun to me, but she is one strong cookie.
So here is not the greatest picture of my print entitled, “Out of Reach.” It is a 7-color, 22 x 26 inch screen print. The edition is 75:
Upon signing and pulling my prints, I found out that the 10-artist suite is going into some pretty prominent collections, like LACMA and the Mexican Museum in Chicago. Neither me or Gina are Latina so it’s a little bit strange, but I’ll take it where I can get it. Each woman also gets the whole suite too, so that is the icing on the cake, I’ll tell ya. There is going to be a big kick-off show of the prints at Self Help Graphics sometime in June, and possibly elsewhere that Yolanda will cook up. I am still just so grateful for this fabulous opportunity.
The prints can’t be sold until June, but I am taking pre-sale orders if you’re interested.
Coincidentally, I finally got my Blogger Killings print completed. It took a long time to get them to look right, but they look amazing and maybe even better than the originals. It’s a smaller edition at the same price as the silk screen, as they are high quality, archival digital prints. Those are for sale now, so order one for your office and scare your co-workers:
I just packed up all the work for the “Bookish” show in Seattle and FedExed it on out of here. I’m still thinking if I will be going to the opening. It might be an expense I can’t do this month, but if you are in Seattle, the opening is Thursday, April 10th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.
