"Ultima came to stay with us the summer I was almost seven. When she came the beauty of the llano unfolded before my eyes, and the gurgling waters of the river sang to the hum of the turning earth. The magical time of childhood stood still, and the pulse of the living earth pressed its mystery into my living blood."

Printing with Michael

On Tuesday we went to Michael’s printing studio and we all got to make prints. The technique was pretty cool but the finished product left something to be desired for most of us.

But Michael was really an amazing person. He learned the trade from his father and was also an artist. He made the most interesting works from a print and then on some he would go back in and re touch them with pencils and add details. He also made prints for other artists and helped them use the technique to create their own masterpieces.

All in all, it was very cool and even though it was a little difficult we all enjoyed ourselves.
