Process and results


I've been print making for about a year now. I took a class for it once and fell in love with it ever since. I definitely want to take the class again. I know from the bottom of my heart that I enjoy the process more than seeing the result. Is it bad for an artist wanna be to say so?

Digging up the linoleum with the same motion over and over is never boring. I can say it's probably my favorite part of the whole process. It makes me not care about the world for a while.

This piece is called "Mother Nature." It's one of my favorites. A little experiment with rolling on different colors all at a time. Quite messy but fun. It's my lazy way of blending the colors.

I feel that "art is the process" and if I end up with a nice piece at the end of the process it is a bonus. And printmaking is suppose to be messy, it's part of the process. Like your work. Deborah
