I’m in a long term relationship with each piece of art I produce. Printmaking is the sort of art that encourages it. Since each print is produced in a limited volume, they tend to be available for purchase for a long time. Art Patrons should also expect to be in a long term relationship with the piece or pieces they collect. The Giclée prints I produce have archival qualities that allow patrons to enjoy the print for a life time.
I hope you also consider adding to your collection over time, joining the members of a series together until you have them all. I think they look best that way, and most series tell some sort of “story”, so you should want to hear it and share it from the beginning to the end.
I think that is one of the reasons I decided to join the March for Science on April 22nd in Seattle. I am also in a long term relationship with the Earth, and I’d like to know that our story exhibits homeostasis.
I’ve created a costume for the march, featuring climate science as the theme. I can share the logo that is printed on part of this costume, but you’ll want to come see it installed as part of the Bemis Spring Art show this weekend.

Blast from the Past:
My version of this mythical beast is slick and streamlined, modernized into a few simple and suggestive lines. Abstract and concise, this minimalist approach renders the form in an almost calligraphic effect. This graphic design “Unicorn” is based on a pen and ink drawing. It was shown in student art shows in the 1980’s. It is based upon a paper-clip sculpture I was toying with at the time.
