My friend Doug Erion is always trying new things--it may be one of my favorite things about him: his sense of adventure. For the past several years he's been on a print-making tangent, with incredible results. He's traveled all over the country and taken workshops from some of the finest printmakers around.
I recently met up with Doug in Loveland where we wandered through the Governor's Invitational Show. Honestly, I thought most of the work was rather uninspired, that is until we headed to the basement gallery where Doug's four monotypes were hanging. I'm not surprised they stuck his work downstairs--it's so very unlike anything else in the show--but truly, what a shame it's not front and center!
