About “Yellowstone”

 
The Inspiration

In August 2010, I accompanied Joey cross-country as he drove his car back to the West Coast.  We were out ten days and drove 4000+ miles.  Two stops along the way were at Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park.  After one long day of touring the park, we wound up staying in a cabin at Yellowstone Lake.  Exhausted from an early start and non-stop sightseeing, we crashed for a while before dinner.  I took a photograph through the window screen catching the roofline of the adjacent cabin.  That photograph, through the screen, was the basis for the “Yellowstone” screenprint.

News about “Yellowstone”

“Yellowstone” was selected as one of 35 prints out of 200 entries exhibited at the 2012 Pyramid Atlantic’s Members Exhibition, April 9-26, 2012.

The Print

This screenprint was developed as a four color print, bold colors and geometric shapes.  There were three screens: yellow, blue, and black.  The fourth color was white.  The prints were made on Arches 88 (#1-6) and Stonehenge (#7-14) paper.  The images are 16” x 12” on 22½” x 18” sheets.  I used Speedball Acrylic Screen Printing Inks.  

14 prints are included in the edition.  In addition, two were set aside along the way to document the printing process (“the Progression Series”).  

Progression Series

The progression series is comprised of two prints.  The first in the series shows the yellow plate.  The second shows the yellow and blue plate.  In addition, a proof of the black plate which overlaid the yellow and blue is shown.
