Bareners, many of you may be interested in seeing the work of Sue Coe. It's
contemporary commentary in woodblock prints. Talk about timely!. Her work
was in the NYC Print Fair this past weekend.

Nude Exchange prints arrived down under this week and it was wonderful
to open them in my hot little hands. It was well worth the wait.

It is so very interesting to see different individual styles on the one
subject. Thank you to those who were in this exchange and to Julie for
co-ordinating it and for her patience.

I haven't done any other Baren exchanges this year and it was nice to
have the time to do this one.

I have been at Uni this year and now on work placement two days a week,
but Uni finishes this week, but because of my professional
qualifications I am working (without pay still) through most of the
holidays as my placements are with adults with physical disabilities
and the other with elderly clients, both placements are residential
units and there are no "holidays" for them. I have been painting a lot
this year and have cleared my debts for framing and exhibition space
hire with my paintings....which seem to be much more easily salable
than my woodblocks and of course much less time consuming, but, I have
been asked to exhibit my woodblocks next year in a group of nine
printmakers and also a solo exhibition in 2008 here in Perth, W. Aust.
so I had better finish my assignments and get back into my shed.

I have missed my carving and printing.

Thank you Julie and Nude exchange participants..... still spread out on
the dining room table.

I have made rice paste with some success. I use rice flour from the grocery store. I put a small amout of rice flour in a tea cup then add cold water and stir to get all the lumps out it should be thick like a cream. I then add this to a small pot of water stir to remove lumps. Bring to a boil and cook until translucent. You could look in the library on the baren website. Most of those online books have recipes in them. Experiment rice flour is cheap.

I have had success with making rice paste directly from white rice.
Just put in three measures of water to one measure of rice. Simmer
for about 30 to 45 minutes ... add more water if it looks like it is
getting dry ... you want it pretty soupy ... should be visible liquid
at all times. After simmering, put the whole works in a blender at
high speed. This makes a very smooth paste ... you will have to
dilute it with water to the desired consistency. I put it in a jar
and keep it in the fridge ... keeps for a week or two with no preservative.

Cheers ...... Charles
