New Multicolor Linocut Print

Printed the first four pieces

These days I was busy with a Multicolor Linocut design. A succulent from cactus family and a frog are its main objects. This is the second design with colors in this series. After transferring the design on the lino sheet, I cut out each lino block to print with different colors. I needed to run a few test prints first and I decided to relocate the frog image moving it down by the water falling design area (see pics below). I hope you enjoy seeing the process... If you have any input or questions, please feel free to leave your comments below. Have a great weekend!

Studio upgrade

I have finally completed the spring studio cleaning. My studio has two new slim display shelves for showcasing small-format artworks (see pic below). The new look of the studio is much better now. It will be very useful this way, especially when I need to show my artworks to studio visitors. Also, this will be my studio exhibition for open studio visits.

If you are not connected to social networks you may have not realized that recently I shared an exhibition news. A few weeks ago my painting "Daydream" was selected to be part of a collective exhibition along with 33 other artworks by 31 women artists from ULPGC Art Collection (see pic below). The collective exhibition "Mujeres y Creación" was curated by Diana Fernández Romero. I had the chance to attend the opening and had the honor to meet with her in person.

Last week I created a new cactus linocut print (see pic below): "Ladybug on a cactus". This is the fifth one in this series. Each cactus is associated with an animal from wild nature. If you remember, the previous ones were with; a butterfly, a bird, a lizard, and a snail (see pic below). Maybe the next one will be with a bee or a spider... If you have any suggestions, let me know. Have a nice week!
