Australian artist Jini Grinwald was the inspiration for this print. She saw some flamenco dance drawings in my sketchbook and said, “This one would make a lovely liquid-metal print…” See whether you agree:

Juan Carlos with his assistant director, MarioOur video/cineasta friend, Juan Carlos Romera, has taken advantage of the new YouTube service to upload the complete version of “Bive,” a 38-minute short film that he made in 2005. In that film I play “Maureen,” an English printmaker who falls in love with a Spanish fisherman. The film is essentially about the storm it causes in a little fishing village on the coast of Almería province.

We had such a great time doing it that I decided that in my next encarnation I want to be an actress. Here’s the link to see it (for free) on the off chance that you might find it amusing:

Mike did a story on the making of “Bive” (Printmaking Makes the Movies) and published it here on World Printmakers.

We didn’t print their color stuff till the last day and Mike didn’t have the chance to shoot it, as he was busy preparing the big  end-of-course barbecue.) This was the third year running that Brenda has come to Granada with a group of 17-18 year olds, and it was, again, a great pleasure to work with them.

If a  picture is worth a thousand words, here’s about 60,000 words on our three-day solarplate experience in my studio in Granada:

Boston printmaker, Dave McDonnell, in Maureen Booth's printmaking studio in GranadaThe McDonnells, Dave Sr. and Jr., were here last week from Boston. Maureen’s studio en the Sierra Nevada foothills outside Granada was just one more stop on Dave senior’s longtime quest for the great photogravure print. The novelty of Maureen’s approach this time was that they were going to use solar plates to create images based on four-color CMYK separations. It was an experiment for all concerned. (more…)
