I took a monoprint class about a year ago with a lovely and talented friend (you know who you are). It was a small class, seven of us including the instructor, Joni Levy Lieberman (http://jonilevyliberman.com)
It was a tricky class for me because it pushed me out of my usual way of working, which is, as we all know, great… Except that I didn’t make much that I really liked. Fortunately, at the end of the semester, Joni had us all cut up some prints and exchange one inch squares. With the squares, we all made art to mail to each other over the summer. That is how I got started with the first three “Night Climbing” paintings. And, clearly I’m not done with them yet.
The painting I’ve posted here is 36” x 36”, mixed media with oil paint on canvas. I’m calling it Dream Tree #1. Yeah, there’s another in the works.
Treat yourself and have a look at Joni’s website (above) and at Elizabeth Carter’s site (below). I hesitate to call Elizabeth a fellow student because it implies she’s just getting started as an artist. A quick look at the work will dispel that misconception. Wish the others had sites I could send you to. Suffice to say, the work is tremendous.
