This piece was created as a “zine” in which the theme was an open-ended interpretation of the term “Madonna”. There were quite a few woodcuts, a little popular culture play on Madonna and child and some fascinating Inkjet prints. I wonder if there were any positive responses to mine? Interesting experiment.
One can be nothing but amazed at the interplay of water and the how the forces of nature impact it. One print in the process plays with that tension. I hope to see it finally printed this month. A small print but still able to hold a nice aquatint half tone. I have delayed any shows because of technical issues dealing with my scanner. Today I have placed an order for a new 12 x 17 flat-bed table top scanner and I am crossing my fingers. It is a Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB scanner with a Hi DPI ratio.
So far the scans are good. Because of the larger A3 (tabloid format), its more of a challenge holding a crisp image on the far edges of the Glass platten.
This scanner has a very weak scanning program. I have tried in vain to inject a TWAIN driver to allow me to scan it directly into Photoshop. With the addition of Adobe PhotoShop CS6, I have at last gotten better functionality in my image processing,
