Dreaming and Printing

On Saturday, June 19, our printmaking group will hold a show and sale in Pacific Palisades, Calif. Four of five artists make monotypes, as I do.

Here is one of my monotypes, in a series of ten, entitled Dream Dust .

My artist’s statement:

I spent a quarter of a century writing down the dust of dreams,

in dozens of notebooks.

And then, in 2001, I tossed them into the recycling bin of history.

Years of dreams are impossible to destroy.

Here they are again, shy and winking,

this time dressed in etching ink.

Yet they speak as they did the first time — in tongues, doing the best they can.
