Printmaking

Posted on

Today I printed my first Intaglio-collograph-thingy-print-thing!

I love it!

I’ve been working on the series for a couple of weeks now, so seeing on panel printed is fantastic. And was quite nerve wracking during the final stages! This one is “Porcini Brined Turkey with Rosemary”. The series is a comment (or whatever) on the lack of native foods, particularly mushrooms, which we use in everyday cooking. In fact, the only native edible mushrooms I have found so far are called ‘blackfellas bread’, a name which leaves much to be desired for many reasons. Apparently, many aboriginal tribes consider the fungus family as a whole to be bad, so they steer clear. So, we don’t eat native mushrooms. Or native anything else really. I will continue to hunt down the Aussie mushie, I am quite happy to be wrong, in the meantime I will work on my second panel – ” Fiddleheads with Braised Rabbit and Morels”.SAMSUNG
