Lorna Burden's article on solar-plate printmaking with Maureen

Maureen and Lorna, going over the solar-plate prints she made in Granada.Lorna Burden, the Australian printmaker and art student, who was here working with me in the month of March, has published an account of her experience in On the Edge, a new magazine “a collaborative effort of the Advanced Diploma of Creative Product Development Students of NMIT (Northern Melbourne Institute of Technical and Further Education.“) The content ranges from original art to art-travel experiences, essays and music commentary.

Lorna’s article is very generous, both with me and with the solar-plate printmaking process, which she took to like a duck to a goldfish bowl.

She’s promised to come back next year for a longer stay. We’ll see if we can conjure up some more surprises.
