“Orange Sun” 5/23/17

Just posted a new piece on my Relief Work page here and on my Instagram Page. It is 9″ x 6″. This is post 102 on Instagram. Plan on posting another variation of this piece in the near future. I am typing this post from my IPhone as I am having trouble posting this from my Laptop. So thank and enjoy the new artwork.

“Update!” 5/16/17

Was finally able to post my “Key Lime Recipe” piece that I posted under my Digital Design Work Page from a little over a year ago (5/13/16 for blog post of the piece). So now you can view it on Instagram as well. This is post #101. Thank you and sorry for the long delay.

“Autumn Leaves” 5/16/17

Just did a new variant of the piece I posted here and my Instagram page yesterday. Same size just did a different color for the leaves. The process to get that color on the leaves is to smear yellow ink with a popsicle stick then roll orange ink on top of that to get that mixing effect to the leaves. I also carved veins into to the leaves to give out more detail to this piece as well. This piece is located in the same places that “Falling Leaves” is located at. This piece makes 100 posts on Instagram for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing. So I thank you and I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I did in creating it.

“Falling Leaves” 5/15/17

Added a new Relief Piece today called “Falling Leaves”. Is 7″ x 5″. I been finding that doing these small pieces and are easier and more enjoyable than the bigger pieces. In addition my Relief Prints I prefer to stick using two colors or less with a few exceptions due to the fact that the more colors you do in Relief Printing the more complicated it get and a great chance that all the colors smear together. I just wanted to announce that I am just one post away from my 100th post. I can’t believe it. You can view this piece on my Relief Work Page here on the Website and on my Instagram Page. Thank you and enjoy.

“Fleur-de-lis (Of Gold & Silver)” 5/8/17

Just posted my most recent piece of work on Relief Work page here on the Website and on my Instagram Page as well. The piece is 7″ x 10″. The Lino-Block I used was 7″ x 5″. So I did one color cleaned the block off then did the other color. This was my first post on Instagram with a new phone so it took me longer than usual to post this piece on there. So I only have two more posts till I hit 100 posts on my Instagram Page. So I hope you enjoy this piece and thank you for all that visit my Website and my Instagram Page.

“John Lennon” 5/1/17

Sorry it has been a while since i’ve posted anything on the Website or Instagram page. I just been busy and haven’t had time to myself to produce anything new till now and it will probably be awhile till I post something else. So there are two versions that are both 12″ x 9″ The difference between the two is one is just yellow with lines, the other has the more detailed finished. I wanted to post both so you can see the difference between the two (on the Relief Work Page and on my Instagram Page). I am just three posts away till I hit my 100th post on Instagram. So I hope you enjoy and I hope I can post more work sooner rather than later.

“Eggcentric Worlds” (More Variations) 4/13/17

Just completed two more versions of the “Eggcentric Worlds” just in time for Easter Holiday weekend. One is just a plain Green Version and the other had an overlap of another print that I had done recently “Checks & Balances”. Both are 12″ x 9″ and both are located on the Relief Work page on the website and my Instagram page. I wanted to do the overlap one just to see how it would come out, but when I saw the green alone I  had great pleasure and please with the color so I posted a plain version of the non-overlap work as well. So this maybe might last post  for a while. I am just five posts away on my Instagram page to 100 posts total. So I hope that everyone that comes and view this work has Good Friday and a Good Easter Sunday as well and that I can post some new stuff within the next couple of weeks. So with that enjoy.

“Royal Flush” 4/11/17

Just did another Relief Print which has two versions (Silver and Color). They are both 9″ x 12″. This piece was a learning process for me in that it was very complicated to do pieces with three colors over two as you need to be careful with not smearing the colors together. It is definitely more easier to do so with two colors than with three. If I were to do more colors I would rather do it with a bigger size lino-block than with a smaller room as more surface area to work with and the less likely of color blurring together. Plus I was using a lino-block which was double sided (that is a block that in not mounted to a block of wood as to the smaller pieces that I did such as the Hummingbird and the Rose I did the last few weeks.  This knowledge I have picked up from this project I will use when considering doing another project in the future. Besides the Website on the Relief Work Page you can also view the pieces on my Instagram page. I only seven posts away from having a 100 posts on my Instagram page. So I hope you enjoy these pieces of work.

“Hummingbird & Flower (Detailed Version)” 4/7/17

Just did a more detailed that is more engraving into the Lino Block. I stuck with two main colors for this one red and green and just went in with a brush for the beak and eye where I used orange and black respectively. This piece is also 9″ x 6″ and used pretty much the same materials. This piece is located on my Relief Work page on my website and on my Instagram page as well. Hope you enjoy this piece and the weekend as well.

“Hummingbird & Flower” 4/5/17

I just added a new piece to my website on my Relief Work Page and  on my Instagram page. This piece is 9″ x 6″ and done with a Lino Block that is 7″ x 5″. This piece had been of a piece by piece where I just rolled the ink onto the flower part and painted the ink on to the rest of the part of the Lino Block since the image is so small that the roller would not have worked with my idea for this piece. I was able to do this piece so quick because of it’s smaller size compared to the last few Relief Work pieces that I have done. However, I did use the same kind of inks that I have been using, which are Water-based Inks. I also wanted to note that this is my 90th piece of work that I have posted on my Instagram page. So I am only 10 pieces away till there be 100 posts on my Instagram page. So I hope you enjoy this piece.
