Looking for a Lost Friend

 
Looking for Kaye Alene

 

I am searching for Kaye Alene


This blog post is not very art related, but it is the only way I can think to get this to show up in the search engines. I lost touch with a dear friend many years ago and have tried several times to find her by using the internet.

Lambada


 
Lambada finished print

 

Trees like to dance! At least they do where I live. The slightest bit of wind and the fourteen oaks, along with walnut, apple, pear, cherry, plum, maple, and aspen trees sway along and sing with the most delightful voices among the leaves.

 

My trees

 

So when I was working on ideas for International Print Exchange #7 by Green Door Studios, I came up with a dancing tree.

Show and Tell: A Visit to the Aquarium

Aquarium etching cropped

 

 

For this Show and Tell post, I am showing a series of three prints instead of just one piece.


In 2009, I visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport with my dear friend Paula. I love that place! I took a lot of photographs that provided me with some great images to use for artwork. A few months later, I did use some in a printmaking class at university, where we were learning to do intaglio etching. It was required that we choose a theme for each term so I chose aquarium images.
