I spent 3 wonderful weeks in April as a fellow at the Virginia Center for Contemporary Arts.

I worked in the printmaking studio and had the chance to further explore transparent gesso as a substitute for the carborundum aquatint process. I did bring some plates with me that had been made with carborundum but for all the new work I used the transparent gesso.  There are only one or two images that I consider "finished" but I did a lot, learned a lot, brought back home a lot of ideas and working proofs.  I met a great group of people, visual artists, writers and composers.
