Birdie in the Window

In the Window, relief print, 2 x 2, Elizabeth W. Seaver


As much as I love birds, I think I would have a conniption if I looked up to see this guy staring back at me from the other side of a window.  

This was a quickie demo for a printmaking lesson last weekend.  I like to create a block along with the student so that I do not hover as they work.    I printed it on fun papers to collage onto brightly colored cards that have a window cut into them.

The public art panel is finished and will be delivered tomorrow.  There will be an opening/ribbon cutting ceremony on First Friday, July 2nd.  I can't wait to see all six panels together.

I will never again underestimate the importance of a big brush.

Hey Elizabeth - I love the strong, black graphic lines. Solid and exciting. It'd be great to see more of your prints!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Thanks, Kim. I am planning to do more now that I'm done painting for the show. They are one of my mainstay sales in my studio.

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hey, Linda! I think I will be posting more of the prints. Thanks for the encouragement.

Congrats on getting the panel finished. Now you can look back on it and realize how much fun it was to create. ;-) I love your little block-print guy. When you get some cards made I'd love one. (I'm really shameless.)

Hi Saundra: It would be truly fun to get together and create, wouldn't it?!

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Hi, Don: I really had fun all the way through it. For once, I didn't stress. I am glad to have it done, however, and on to the next!

I'd love for you to have one of my cards!

I am very interested in doing some block prints this winter and this little guy just fed my inspiration. Printing on a fun paper...such a simple idea but such impact.
