Crane Monoprints

I made some crane monoprints with my Gelli plate a couple weeks ago. I live in Kearney, Nebraska, which is the Sandhill Crane Capital of the World. Each spring, over 500,000 sandhill cranes migrate through the area and spend time along the Platte River, on the edge of town.

I made interesting background papers on the Gelli plate, then used a hand-cut stencil to add the crane image.  I only made a handful but plan to make more.

I also made some more cow monoprints, since I sold many of them at the Denver Summer Art Market show about a month ago.
