My cool and unusual silkscreen print of a tropical ocean sunset in black & white over bold painterly streaks of orange, red, gold and purple on seafoam green recycled cardstock, 8x10"

It's inspired by my belovedly whacko City of Los Angeles, with its tangly, janky mishmash of palatial houses and camp cottages and electrical poles and street signs all wound around poplar trees and palms and evergreens with vines all roiling around and tumbling over dry rocks and sandy soil to teeter last-minute over the rolling rollicky surf.

These assured, oddball screen prints perfectly capture the fine details of my helter-skelter line drawing. Every skip of the ink, every flourish and flip of the line is expressed... and contrasted against the background colors which suggest landscapes of their own.

They have something in common with retro 1960's wall decor. They're reminiscent of UPA cartoons, Science Fiction paperback book covers, and String Art. They'd be comfortable in a Mexican restaurant, a psychiatrist's office, or upscale waiting room... that I might have seen in a dream.

From our friends at Wikipedia: "Monoprints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques; it is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike. The beauty of this medium is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing media."

Each print is unique and unrepeatable, so choose your favorite because once it's gone, it's gone. You may see a slideshow of every variation at: www.hauntedhouseofprojects.com/cliffhanger
