Cross cultural myth and art

I’ve been absent in posting on this site – not out of negligence but because, 1) I’ve decided to slow things down a couple of notches. Screenprinting is so process intensive that each stage of production must be pursued with full attention and care. 2) While my original intent was to link up the commonalities Read More…

First sight

The morning light has been beautiful lately… except for a couple of days of pretty dense fog. Frankly the fog suits me better but who could not like this warm light that infuses everything with an orange glow.
Had a busy day and finally got to go into the garden. For some plants, the drought is Read More…

October doings

A week ago I finished the last of the previous series. I also experimented with mixing monoprint with silkscreen print.

Began working on a new series of prints for the Animals,  Myth and Dreams theme. These images carry on the same theme but represent a new chapter in an ongoing journey. I am now using my drawings for the basic image. The Read More…

October Changes in the Garden

Two of my three installations from the Creative Spaces exhibit at the Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) came down last month. One of them is still there. The materials were brought back here with the help of CHSA staff who were kind enough to schlep them all into the far end of my garden. Read More…

Garden Intimacy

It seems that things in the garden grow much more profusely when I’m not watching. From when I first planted the succulents to deal with the apparent drought, they have grown a lot – nestling into their neighbors, expanding and even bearing seed.

Now it’s raining! In the middle of August! It’s a light, misty rain, Read More…

Open Air Studio

Today Open Studio goes outside. I took Nikki for a run while I biked. We started from Golden Gate Park – JFK Drive just before the turn-in to the Polo Field. We rode to the top of the paved path at Land’s End, to our usual rest-stop and turn-around point. The sky today was strangely Read More…

Silk screen print: Sister/Sister

Finished the last run – black – today. Still need to work on some technical problems but got enough good prints for a small edition.


Draw, paint, print

Last week I began color separations and screen preparation for my next – now current – print, “2 birds” (working title).
It began as a drawing I did at the beginning of the year.

Then I did a painting from it, joining other paintings in the series.

Now the painting has “mutated” into a print. Did the first Read More…

The Dogs

A couple of pictures of the dogs in the last few days.
Took both dogs out together the other day.  We went to Baker Beach. It’s been a while since I did that. Did Trina a lot of good as she got to run and explore and play. She’s still got a lot in her. It’s Read More…
