Blast from the past

I thought it would be a good idea to post some older work, stuff i still like from the good old days.

This first one is a monoprint 24x36 done in 2005. With a drypoint print of a dragonfly printed on top.
For those who don't know printmaking terms monoprint means it is a unique print, there is only one copy. basically this involves drawing on a copper plate with ink and printing it. A drypoint is similar to an etching but without etching the surface with acid. Instead you simply scratch lines into the copper plate with a sharp object. It's more difficult then etching but you don't need all sorts of chemicals and it's certainly less toxic.
This is an oil painting I painted in the summer of 2005 48x48 oil on panel. Exhibited at the Union Gallery for Pause and Rewind in Kingston. Now it's being displayed on the Queen's University campus in Mackintosh-Corry Hall.
