Yesterday I began pulling out older work to hang on my studio walls, since many of my paintings are currently hanging out in Twin Falls, ID. As I sifted through the days upon days of art that had accumulated I came upon some elephant prints that I had done early on. I was reminded how fun a process carving the rubbery material was and how much I enjoyed the end result. I pulled out a bunch of paper and a canvas and decided I would create more editions. I collaged paper using an an old magazine for one edition, created a watercolor for another, cut up a work that I have never really been fond of, and lastly painted a canvas as a backdrop for the final print.
It was as much fun this round as it was the first!
These look great – and the process inspiring. Never considered printing over existing – but what a good idea!

I like them.
Does the first (with the green side panel) contain an anti poaching message?
Thank you! It’s nice to take a piece that I didn’t necessarily love the first go round and re-use it in a better way (like blue stripe one).
Thanks so much for the re-blog!
Thanks, Ian! Just the opposite, actually. It touts the benefits of using the Bausch & Lomb Hunting scope.
