pt This is just another linocut for the annual LCVA Box Show auction coming up in September.  I experimented with my ink on this one.  I started with brown, then slowly added, red, yellow, and orange.  I hand pressed 20 and only the first two are exactly the same.  The others are a mix of rusty colors and that’s exactly what I wanted to do….for once..ha!  I use the pheasant tail nymph a lot when I fly fish.  It’s on my top ten list of flies, especially when I fish at devils lake.  It works great under a dropper for crappie or bluegills.  Anyway, I’ll have this one on display at my booth at the Artalicious Festival in Adrian on September 14th and 15th.  Pi Benio of Adrian College asked if I would be a printmaking demonstrator.  So, I’ll be there with my tools, ink and paper making whatever.  I think I may have a printmaking partner.  I asked Carlos Tobar who is a long time printmaker and painter in Adrian to join me.  He said he would and he’s going to bring one of his portable print presses….YESSSS!
