Block Prints and Etchings by Liz Neuman
“These watercolor block prints feature birds seen in the Pacific Northwest, either resident or passing through during migration. Often carving my blocks one site, I complete the process in my home studio working from sketches and photos. I handprint each original on Rives BFK paper using black ink, pulling prints as needed. When the ink has dried I apply layers of transparent watercolor wash to the areas of white, varying background color but staying true to the color of the bird. All of my prints are originals and are available framed or unframed. More of my collection is on my website. Wonder was sparked in childhood and still drives my curiosity and joy in nature!” 3owltree.com
Photographs by Taylor Hurley
“Taylor Hurley is the head mechanic, owner-operator and photographer/bicycle curiosa for the internationally famous, mobius cycle, established in 2002. Hurley is an artist, first, and mobius is platform, place and portal. He is a perpetual student of most subjects and a connector who sifts data – fostering mutually beneficial connections between people and objects, people and spaces and most importantly people to people – his highest work. When he isn’t building dream bicycles, he is likely photographing them, instead. Catch him between Seattle and San Francisco or visit online at www.mobiuscycle.com.”
Paintings by Will Boswell
“Will Boswell has been painting landscapes and seascapes in oil for about six years. Prior to that time he focused his artistic interests on fine woodworking. Will’s primary focus in his landscape paintings is to depict the “atmosphere” of the scene. To achieve the appropriate color combinations often requires the application of multiple thin layers, otherwise known as glazing. Marin County painter Russell Chatham artist has had the most influence on his style. Several visits to Chatham’s studio in Point Reyes, California, helped Will to learn some of the painting techniques that are unique to Chatham’s work. Other painters that have inspired Will include Western artists like Granville Redmond, Edgar Payne, as well as some of the French Impressionists. Will makes his own box frames for some of his larger work and designed the “fine art” frames that are custom-made by a master cabinet maker in Bellingham, Washington. He uses vertical grain Douglas fir from the Northwest and Sepele from Africa to produce some of the finest frames found anywhere.” www.willboswell.com
