It’s Printshop Time!
Let’s baptize my press with a day of (elephant) demos in my studio/Peanut Gallery Press printshop.

Thanks to #cityartistcorps -you all are invited to my backyard @ 22 Livingston Ct. on Saturday, 0ctober 16, 12pm-4:pm -with demos on the hour. Popcorn balls, monoprints, and who knows!
Raindate Sun. Oct 17.

Yesterday was exciting- I received a NYC Artist Corp Grant! But then could not sleep- So I played with this gal - thinking she will be featured in my live monotype demo in the “evolving” printshop out in my Livingston garage. Save Sat. Oct 16th- and I will show you how it’s done!

From my Art Archives: Quetzalcoatl, a oil pastel drawing (painting?) on a polyester silkscreen frame.
This “feathered serpent" or "plumed serpent") is the Nahuatl name for the Feathered-Serpent deity of ancient Mesoamerican culture. In Mesoamerican myth Quetzalcoatl is also a mythical culture hero from whom almost all mesoamerican peoples claim descent.
I traveled to Mexico in the 1987 or so- and was swept away.

My first go at teaching Watercolor 101 Workshops on Zoom for NYC “seniors” was a blast. They were so fun and brave to pick up a brush -as we learned lots of skills -via exercises and observation.

Another practice landscape watercolor from life.
The bugs were nippy and I had to run due to some summer rain. It is not perfect …but I learn a great deal every time. What’s missing?
Val-Kill has three cottages- this one is Stone Cottage, and has a pool and a prim little patio. Eleanor Roosevelt used the site as her primary home and headquarters - and is part of the tranquil Roosevelt Family National Historic sites one can visit in Hyde Park.
You can also watch my video post re: Hyde Park on my main page.
