Persist

I have been interested in the iconography of the knit Pussy Hats that became a symbol of unity at the Women’s March. Hundreds of thousands of these hats were knit from a simple pattern that someone put up on the internet. Yarn stores ran out of pink yarn, and  the image continues to have power.

I chose the word PERSIST as a positive affirmation.  To continue firmly in the face of  opposition or difficulty, to be insistent, to endure and keep moving forward with our goals and dreams. It is a contradiction to giving up or putting ourselves aside for others.

PERSIST is my newest limited edition linoleum block print. It is available on my website and I will donate a percentage of profits to nonprofits that support women in moving forward in the world. Tell me what you think! How are you moving forward?

Here is a sneak peak of how this limited edition print was made. I started with two printings of a linoleum block ,printing first with yellow and then rotating the block and over printing with a paynes gray mix to get this. FullSizeRender

I then inked and wiped two drypoint etching plates. One with orange ink and the other with a magenta.IMG_2168

I printed the orange etching plate first over the linoleum prints

stage 3 print

and then the magenta plate to make the initial image on this blog. Then I repeated this process over 40 times to create a final edition of 35 limited edition prints.

Come out to the studio and see where the work is made and what I have been up to artistically for the last year. best, Carol

I am pleased to be featured in this exhibit at Frog Hollow in Burlington, VT. I started playing the cello as an adult about 10 years ago and I love how the practice of music enriches my life on so many levels. This image has been used as the graphic for the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival.  The Festival is one of the high points of my summer.
