I have just joined up with the Baren Group.
Recently, I have started working on printmaking again.
It has been quite some time as I was working as a photographer and
currently as a designer, but after much thought have made some dedicated
time to spend on printmaking. So, you won't find any prints on my website
but I'd like to get involved in the exchanges and when I update my site this
Fall I will include some of my new work.
Thanks for your time and inspiration,
Jennifer Ressmann

Hello all,

I am curious to know if anyone else is applying to this year's Boston
Printmakers Exhibition. Monday is the deadline for submissions, so its been
on my mind and I've been scrambling to get mine out. Maybe this will be the
year I get in! Info is at:

I was pretty impressed with the drawing on your blog. When you do a woodcut, can you program it to remove just the white space? I like the ones you do that are multiblock, but I think one that was just one block would also be interesting, like this drawing in reverse for the block. Are the lines just too close together to cur well? At any rate, this is very impressive.

It does show that large gets attention. Your museum purchases probably would not have happened if they were small. Not to knock them in any way, just an observation on the fact that large seems to sell. I think this is one reason prints are not taken as seriously as paintings, the fact that they are so much smaller in size. I have sold several prints this year, a few small ones but also two huge ones that were assembled on the mounting block, that is the paper glued down like a collage. For some reason the large ones generate way more interest than the small ones. An interesting comment on our culture in general, I suppose. Probably one reason large aluminum plate lithos are so popular as collaborations with painters, they want to do large scale work.
Best to all,
