Holy Mackerel!

the first 2 images are source digital prints that are details of one of my earlier foil laminated construction of Mackerel.  i printed out several copies of these prints on some 96 bright white paper, with the intention of creating some photo transfers onto laminate.

The prints were then deconstructed, transferred, foiled and laminated.  following are two fishy landscapes.  

Holy Mackerel landscape 1 approx 5.5x6"

Holy Mackerel landscape 2:  approx 6.25x6"
this one has a lighthouse!

have never considered myself a landscape painter, yet this island landscape of gloucester ma imposes its silhouettes into my work.  i have also transferred/incorporated some details of Hokusai's "Great Wave" into these works.  


ps:  have noticed that i am perfecting my craft as i focus on this series. work is coming through me that i have never seen before.  i think my friend Kate Somers once dreamed it.
