"Gridley Head" woodcut with red, yellow and blue acrylic
This woodcut represents a leap ahead in my printmaking. I tried an experiment that worked and am very happy with the outcome.
I painted red, yellow and blue acrylic paint on a piece of 140 lb. Strathmore water color paper. Then, after the paint was dry, I printed a woodcut of Gridley, my English Bulldog, in black, oil-based ink over it.

Acrylic on board
16 x 20
First in a series of paintings of dogs. This happens to be my dog, Gridley. I've always loved dogs. Unconditional love and all that. My first dog was a Daschshund. Awful dog. He used to bite my nose. (They're used for hunting Badgers in their burrows. And, Badgers are nasty!) But, I was about ten and probably tormented him. Anyway, glad to be painting again. Stay tuned for more.

I see Lisa most mornings if I make it to the Winnetka Fitness Center. She works there at the reception desk. She also is an instructor and manager of the Chicago Red Hots, a women's roller derby club In Cicero, IL. Next month, she'll take a polar plunge in Lake Michigan. Yikes!
