Lovely tricolor gum print, Diana. And very nice work from Rita as
well. Thanks for telling us about this.

I thought I'd mention, especially for anyone who might be in the
Philadelphia area, that both Rita Bernstein and I are in a small
group show with 4 other folks at the Nexus Foundation in
Philadelphia, which opens October 9. It's called "Toyland," which
features images by photographers who use toy cameras for much of
their work. I *think* Rita and I are the only two who are showing
alt process work. Rita is showing her prints that are silver
emulsion on Japanese gampi paper (amazing work), and I'm showing
all tri-color gum prints. So, if you're in the area, do stop in.
In connection with the exhibit, Project Basho is hosting a panel
discussion with the artists on October 17, and I'm also scheduled
to teach a toy camera workshop that same weekend (Oct 18-19).
I also just wanted to thank all the folks here who've written
about gum-printing-- either posted about it here or elsewhere (or
posted their inspiring images), as well as those who answered all
my never-ending questions off-list-- a major help when printing
this work! I don't think I would have ever attempted gum-
printing had I not taken Kerik's gum over pt/pd workshop at
Project Basho. I was getting somewhat bored with straight pt/pd
prints, and the added element of gum made it seem fresh again.
But I really like the process itself, despite the time it takes
(and it's so much cheaper than pt/pd!).
