I stole this print-drying rack design from a very fine artist whose work I admire heartily and who’s been generous with her expertise. Thank you, Sherrie! It works great!
Don’t you love the green plastic roofing tacks holding the clothespins to the 1×2?
This is a linocut of a Black-breasted Puffbird, which I observed, spellbound, on the Wheeler Trail in the rainforest of Panama’s Barro Colorado Island, in a tree-fall gap about 500 meters from the trailhead. There was a broken tree with a flush of new leaves at the top, and the Puffbird sat and surveyed its surroundings from the upper branch. I stood almost beneath it for many long minutes which gave me ample time to work on the foreshortening. This print is an edition of 30 on very beautiful Japanese Hoshi paper. This rack holds exactly 31 prints, 3″ apart, so I have one space for a good artist’s proof. And I’ll be leaving for the Island again next week, for a sketching/painting/birding/thinking/writing two-week sojourn in the romantic tropics. High time for one of those! And I am so loving my new print-drying rack!
