Yesterday, I attended JVH Technical’s DIGITAL PRINTING EXPO in Bellevue. If you weren’t there, too bad you missed out on this amazing event! My brain hurts. OUCH. I learned a lot about the entire process of printing fine art with today’s amazing new printers and papers.
I expect to move my signature pieces over to the digital printing process because I really really miss having the paper choices available when working in the wet darkroom. My belief is that each image speaks to us, as artists, and if we listen, it will communicate the desired paper upon which it should be printed. The paper continues/supports the mood/message of the image. With the archival quality of digital printing, and the amazing quality, coupled with magnificent papers – it’s an undeniable avenue I must pursue.
There was also a competition of digital art entries. There were things as grand/amazing as a 40′ panorama of the Seattle waterfront, a magnificent backlit display of waterfowl that looked as if you could reach deep into the image, a watercolor that had been printed on a silk scarf, huge beautiful portraits, magnificent landscapes, baby portraits, abstract artwork – just some really beautiful work. I am so proud to show my entry of Jade, the much loved dog of my clients, Shaun & Aschlee Squiers of Belfair. This portrait of Jade captured first place in the B&W category. She’s printed on Hot Press Bright White EPSON fine art paper, and just gorgeous! Congratulations, Jade, you are a good dog!
