Waiting

My husband has spent lots of studio time with me over the years, enough to learn the craft of lino-cut printmaking.  He has made several small editions, and has sold every print.  His imagery, unsurprising to anyone who knows him, is always marine related.

My First Etching

A little blast from my past: Introduction to Intaglio Printmaking at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (NSCAD), led by Dan O’Neil, in the winter of 1996.  This image was made on a zinc plate using hard-ground and aquatint drawing techniques.  Printed with black ink.  Loved the process, and Dan’s teaching style.

Throw Back Thursday

This untitled piece was a part of my first solo exhibit back in 1998, teastory.

Lithograph, found object, thread. Janet Davis 1998

Each piece in the series is the size shape and image of a tea bag. The teacup fragments were collected from the floor of my Morris Street apartment’s tiny kitchen. Too precious to be thrown away, I tucked them away for an unknown purpose, until I imagined this piece.

It’s all about holding precious bits and fragments of the past, but going on with something new, beautiful, and cherished.
