Hand screenprinted, 9 color Hello Birds 2011 Calendar. (Click to purchase or for more info!)
Calendars quite something, right? They help us keep track of time, but they can also help set a mood for the day. Let’s face it, of all of the things that we look at each & every day? A least a few should make you happy just by eyeballing ’em. My 2011 “Hello Birds” Calendar aims to do just that. It’s just a fresh new day with some bird friends, saying “Hello.” Pretty good start already!
Our 2011 “Hello Birds” Calendar comes in 2 versions, the one that you see here on crisp white paper, and next week there will also be a version on a wintery Spearmint to be released on 12/9/10. Your choice!
This happy day scene is my 9-color, hand screenprinted silkscreen print, loaded with overprints from my hand mixed poppy red, sun orange, sky cyan and forest green water based screenprinting inks. The extra bit of magic? From 4 colors pulled, I get 9 by layering inks to make new colors. I love screenprinting! All 2011 “Hello Birds” Calendar prints are hand signed. Limited Edition of 75. Size: 12 x 19 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight. $20

Hand screenprinted, 3-color art print 'Winter 2009', part of my seasons series and available now. Click for more info!
Yay for cold weather, hot cocoas, snow and bar branches! Yes, that’s right, I mean it. I am a true Northerner because I love Winter. And my newest print is a love letter to an under-rated season.
I just love that absolute quietness that falls with snow in a forest. We have Cardinals here in the winter, and their brilliant red always darts out from the winter pattern of color behind them like a signal, reinforcing the magic of a winter’s day.
Hey hey! So you looking at my Winter 2009 art print, a part of my new Seasons series. This is the fifth print in series of seasonal, limited edition prints that I’ll be releasing. Ready? Here’s the mind-blowing part = there will be 4 per year.

Spring 2009, hand screenprinted, 2-color limited edition art print
Ahhhhhh Spring. It’s here! And just in time for Arbor Day (US observed).
Arbor Day was one of my favorite elementary school days. I swear we went outside in the fresh spring air in the morning, watched a new tree planting and dedication, had some cupcakes back inside the school room and then (!) Smokey The Bear would come visit and talk to us in the afternoons. Maybe I’m mashing a few special school days all into one, but I don’t care. That’s how I remember Arbor Day. So, I wanted to release this new limited edition art print on Arbor Day!
From a few designs I was playing with a few weeks ago, (see my previous blog post here and more designs here on my Flickr page here) I chose this one to be my Spring 2009 art print. I just love the simplicity and the surprising way that magenta and this tender, light green interact and work together.
This is the second print in a series of seasonal, limited edition prints that I’ll be releasing. Ready? Here’s the mind-blowing part – there will be 4 prints per year. Crazy! I know!
This springy dance is a 2-color, hand printed screenprint, with bright new green and transparent magenta inks. Magenta overprints green in parts to make a ruby red. Edition of only 50. Size: 16.5w x 22h inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: acid-free & archival Cougar 100lb White, cover weight. Now available for sale on my website here. There are a few process photos that I took while printing this on my Flickr page here as well.
