Greetings to all the hibernating Bareners,

I'm as guilty as everyone in not contributing.
So, here are my latest woodblock prints.

Well, I'll post that any Barener's that will be in the Charlottesville, VA area on December 8th should come on down to my studio in McGuffey Art Center for food and fun on our open house! You can come see my letterpresses and woodblocks and enjoy holiday food and wine! Others in the building will be holding kids activities. To check the schedule go to:

Hello to all of the kind folks at Baren Forum!

I'm writing to introduce myself... and I want to apologize for not doing
so sooner. (>_<) I'm afraid I've been lurking for quite some time... not
because I'm suspicious, but rather because I am shy and also a perfectionist
who is embarrassingly not prolific. I'm working on changing that. (Except for
the not suspicious part...)

My name is Misty Arnold. I graduated with a degree in studio art from UMaine
in 2002, after having spent my final undergraduate year at Hirosaki University
in Japan. After graduating, I worked full-time in art supply retail in a sort of
non-art-making limbo for five years. This year I've committed to disciplining
myself into better personal work-habits (!) and to additionally shake things
up a bit I relocated to the west coast where I am now working as a custom
framer for a gallery in Eugene, Oregon that specializes in Asian prints.

I've been here for about three and a half months and it has been richly
rewarding so far. I work for a wonderful couple who have been encouraging
me to produce work, as well as providing me with a wealth of information
on prints in general. I feel very lucky to be able to handle work by some
of my heroes. Right now, I'm especially fond of folks from the Shin
Hanga movement (Hasui, Hiroshi Yoshida) and some American printmakers
from around the same time (Lum, Hyde). I love their use of color,
especially in nighttime and rainy scenes.

I have very, very little experience in mokuhanga and have really only ever
successfully produced intaglio and linoleum prints, but I hope with your
advice and encouragement to get started and eventually begin joining in
your exchanges. I don't have internet at home right now, so I'm very
slowly trying to make my way through all of the great blogs and homepages
posted here while at the library. I aspire to one day return to Japan to study
under a master printer. For now, though, I'm hoping to take some workshops
in my area and experiment on my own.

Sorry for lurking for so long.
Hajimemashite & yoroshiku onegai itashimasu!
