Three New Print Editions and the Shop is Now Open

Nobody Sends Me Flowers: The Song of Colonel Beauchamp II
Heroes of the Air II
Misfortune and Repast
2011 is shaping up to be a good year for accomplishing goals.
I’ve finally succeeded in having editions made of three linoleum blocks I carved last year, as well as opening a humble online shop to sell my artwork.
Two of the editions, “Nobody Sends Me Flowers: The Song of Colonel Beauchamp II” and “Heroes of the Air II” are from the series called “Impossible Highway, Volume I: Duty Before Roses.” The third edition, called “Misfortune and Repast,” is from the series “Impossible Highway Volume II: Perfidy’s Rainbow.”
Stephanie Smith at the Atlanta Printmakers Studio printed the blocks on 100% cotton rag Rives BFK paper using a Vandercook 215 cylinder proof press. Each was run in a small edition of 20 and there a some Artist Proofs for each image.
