LE SUITE GESU: DIVINE MERCY STUDY DRAWING

LE SUITE GESU: DIVINE MERCY STUDY DRAWING

Reality has caught up to me. I originally set my goal for Le Suite Gesu at 10 prints a year. I got 15 done in the first year, but nothing since last November. Now I’m back at it, and with a more reasonable goal. Since…

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS: 10TH PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS: 10TH PROOF

I’m close to an artist proof with this one. I guess I’ll wait a day or so to decide. The paper is soaked and ready for an edition. My thing now is I kind of like this. I know I’m sending Scourging at the Pillar to a…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS: 9TH PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING THE CROSS: 9TH PROOF

I thought I’d really messed this up. The proofs were coming out part ghostly and some lines were popping out and didn’t belong and I don’t know what. But I went and redrew almost everything and etched it again. Now it works. The engraving I…

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS: 5TH PROOF

LE SUITE GESU: CROWNING WITH THORNS: 5TH PROOF

I’ve been working towards this very dark, worked image since I started this print. Now I probably just use scraping, burnishing, and polishing to finish it up. The nose is really projecting…finally. I’ve got it modeled and the old chiaroscuro is beginning to work. I…

LE SUITE GESU: BUILDING UP

LE SUITE GESU: BUILDING UP

There is absolutely no way to copy, line-for-line, a pencil drawing onto copper and make it work. I never found a way, and in any case, I have the pencil drawing. So I’m building this one up layer by layer of marks at different depths….

LE SUITE GESU: TOOK A DAY OFF

LE SUITE GESU: TOOK A DAY OFF

Wow, I slept until 10:30 Saturday! Pooped from so much work, both from the day job, night job, and three major studies in two weeks. But things are coming together as I get frayed at the edges. Har har. Today I got the Crowning with Thorns needle…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 3

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 3

I’ve upped the ante. Something is taking off here, ascending, if I may be so bold. Of course, I’m inspired. I’ve answered Barnett Newman’s question “What do you paint?” My subject matter is not neutral, as Cezanne’s was. I can’t project my intentions onto a…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 2

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 2

May is the month for Mary, the Mother of God. I will this month begin an Assumption of Mary that will be released on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption. The studies and progress can be followed on this blog. I am working randomly through the…

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 1

LE SUITE GESU: CARRYING OF THE CROSS STUDY: DAY 1

Today, as I write this, is the feast day of St. Catherine of Siena. She is one of my favorite saints, because she spoke to God as a friend. We should all seek to be a friend of God. I began this Carrying of the Cross as…

LE SUITE GESU: DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY NOTES

LE SUITE GESU: DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY NOTES

Today Pope John XIII and Pope John Paul II are canonized. They were already saints, forged in the lives they both led. Lives of holiness and an openness to the Spirit of God. I was at a marriage retreat in March, and as we were…
