Cover-layout-flat.jpg Here’s a new book I just finished and online at www.blurb.com . I love blurb and you can do an on demand book in just a week. Quality is excellent, and both the hardbound and soft cover are excellent. Not cheap, but good. Works for me. Take a look: http://www.blurb.com/books/1191786

I’ve been working on a series of 32 water color paintings and now about half way through the series. I do a tight pencil sketch, then ink the drawing with waterproof sepia ink, then do the painting over everything. Take a look at the series when you get a chance. http://art2go-rtdm.blogspot.com/

Here’s a detail of my “Dead Squirrel Water Color Kit” from my summer ceramics class. Brushes rest on the top of each of the upended feet. There’s nothing like a dead squirrel to warm the heart is there?

Results from my summer ceramics class

Whenever I take a ceramics class I don’t do anything else. Here’s one of 2 tables of work that I completed during my 6 week class. I worked everyday for as long as I could without passing out. In the foreground are a couple of “Dead squirrel water color kits”.
The brushes rest between the upended feet. Most students complete about 6 to 8 pieces during the class. I worked on over 250 pieces. There are a number of white watercolor mixing dishes on this table.

New die-cut, super complicated promotional piece fraught with difficulty.

roger

11x17-FINAL-500pixelswide.jpg
I try to make everything as complicated as possible. Here’s an example of my method. This is an 11×17 inch printed sheet. The red line denotes the marks where a die is to be made. Once the die is made, I take the printed sheets, die, to a die stamper and he punches them out of the paper, one by one. I use Die Max in Rochester, NY for the die, 4over.com for the printing (16pt stock) and precision Die Stamping in Port Byron, NY for the stamping. All good people, & I recommend.

Remember… squirrels arent just for breakfast anymore. Print

SQUIRREL.jpg
About this print :
A week or so before my Mom passed away,
she spoke with me about going into an assisted
living facility. I thought this was odd because
she resisted the idea of going into a home for
so long. She prized her independence so much.
Mom felt there was too much for her to
handle and one of things she mentioned
was the squirrel on her porch.
She was most annoyed by the man who
fed the birds on the floor above her as
he attracted so many squirrels.
This is my memorial print to my Mother and her
annoyance with squirrels and what to do about
them.
I only wish I could have purchased a rifle
for her now. She would have enjoyed shooting
at the squirrels from her comfortable chair in
the living room. I can just imagine her sitting
in the chair with the rifle and her glass sliding-
doors with large holes in them where she shot
at them. Now that I think of it, there might
have been holes in the ceiling too.
I dedicated my first children’s book to my
Mother. After I sent her my book “Messy Bessie,
Where’s My Homework? she said: “You know I
hate mice !”
Mom kept every drawing, postcard, print, news-
paper article and painting I ever did. When we
cleaned out her apartment, they were all there.
Every one of them! She would have kept this
print even though there were squirrels in it.
My Mom loved her family and loved birds.
I’ll make a bird print next.
I will miss her dearly.
