I just finished the second page of my Red Balloon Series, a story about a young girl and red balloon. I have been trying to come up with as many scenarios to create prints from. I know that in the future they will go on a bike ride together, go to school and maybe watch the sunset. For now, here are the two of them running through a field together. Looks like fun doesn’t it?
Any suggestions for fun adventures for this young girl and her red balloon friend?
So, I have just started a new print series that I am really excited about. I forgot how much I love printmaking. In an attempt to fully embrace the whole artist that I am, I have decided to just do whatever I feel like in the studio each day. If I feel like photographing, I’ll take a walk and do that. If I feel like printmaking, than I will start carving and if I want to make a purse, well then I will start sewing. You get the picture.
These last few weeks have been filled with finally starting and completing some print series work that I have had on the back burner for a while.
One in particular project is called “The Red Balloon.” I just finished printing the first of I don’t know how many different prints for this series. As you may have guessed, the print involved a red balloon. It also involves a young girl and will eventually involve a young boy (a few prints down the road). Anyway, I wanted to show the first print of this series.
As always, my prints are available for purchase at my etsy store.
A couple of months back I spent about two weeks in the Great White North. Most of my time was spent indoors staring out large windows. I was lucky the scenery was easy on the eyes. I did snowshoe a few times and get to venture down a trail that seemed to only have about 2 other visitors. When I arrived back home I had several vivid visual memories.
I’m excited to share my 5 print Winter in Alaska series. Most of my prints from the last 3 years or so have started with a photograph. This is the first time in a long time that a print has been influenced by a memory. It’s a huge departure from my installation and project based work and I am loving it! I told someone the other day that I’m trying to fully embrace all 8 Lauren’s that live inside me.
I’d like to introduce you to one of my Lauren’s. The printmaker.
There are 9 originals of each of the 5 prints (except the sun at the top of the page – there are only 8). I will be selling both the originals and an unlimited edition of giclee prints at my shop. CLICK HERE to visit The Print Studio.
