Photos shifting to printmaking

What a Spring…moving to a new place, the possibly had the swine flu, plugging along with work, setup a new blog design…and I am coming out of that embarking on a new project…
I learned a printmaking technique using Solarplates. You literally use UV light to expose a plate with a drawing or photograph (on transparent paper) and it creates an etching into the plate in which you can apply ink and transfer the image to paper. I won an artist residency with Print Arts NW as well – so I am going to focus my artwork to something like I have posted here. In my photography I have been working on urban landscapes and so I will continue that theme here with my printmaking. I will plan to work in color, texture, sky elements, etc. and develop this idea further.
