Size always matters!
I print on two sizes. Most of the work is 16x24 inches. Lately, for a series of grain elevators, I've gone to 24x32 inches.

So how big are you printing on plywood? Does size matter?

Thanks a lot, Mark. Your gravures were awesome. Of course they'd be better if they weren't so darn perfect. :)

Keith Gerling lives about a 45 minute drive from me, so every once in a while we get together. It's been a while since we have done this, so today I went out to his great place in the woods and took a look at the new work he is going—gum prints of ballet performances.
They are beautiful. Keith has some great images that are beautiful, sensitive compositions. He has printed them large on marine plywood over his special base coat. The muted colors he is using add to the softness & grace of the subject and his photographs. I was really impressed with what he has done with the medium.
Way to go Keith!
Cor, I appreciate your sharing this windfall.
