fish prints

   summer ART 2015 fish prints

I love how the kids used the sponges to create coral, water and seaweed.
We used only gold and/or silver paint for the fish.

Potato Heart by Jason Polan

Jason Polan

I like making potato prints and thought it might be a nice way to make a piece of art with a heart. I bought a potato and cut a notch on the top of it. Each cross section of the potato was then in the shape of a heart. For each artwork, I would cut a sliver of the potato away, add paint and make the print. The first ones were small hearts. The hearts got bigger until the thickest middle part of the potato and then again got smaller until there was nothing left of the potato. Each person that gets one of the pieces will get their own, they will each be different (I only made one print per cut). Each piece is part of that one potato. Some of the prints are more heart looking than others because of the lumps and bumps in the potato but all are hearts. The edition size was to be however many the potato would make. This potato made 32. I numbered the prints in order of printing so the first few (1 thru 3) and the last few (30 thru 32) were smaller hearts than the middle ones (15 thru 17). They were printed on Fabriano 4.5"x6.7" (115x170mm) paper and are all signed and dated (all on the back). Maybe you can give one to somebody you love (or maybe somebody you love will give one to you).
