Each year the Arts Council of Santa Cruz holds a fundraiser called 'Hearts for the Arts' which benefits their educational programs. Artists from around the county donate artwork on the theme of Love which are displayed at the downtown shot Artisans. Here's the process behind my monoprint on panel entitled Blue Heart for 2015.
For the holiday season I've been experimenting with collograph plates to make greeting cards. This image of mistletoe was printed from a plate made of mat board coated with polyurethane. The dark green leaves were cut out of the board exposing the mat, the berries are self-lining paper cut into circles and glued onto the plate.
